Nigeria_Updated by 1.12.2015Christian Community – Attacks on Churches, Pastors, and explicitly Christian targets Muslim Community  – Attacks on Imams or other explicitly Muslim targets (note: Boko Haram has yet to indiscriminately target a Mosque, all so-called mosque attacks, were assassination attempts of prominent Muslims who disagreed with Boko Haram. The attacks took place when the targeted Muslims were entering or leaving a mosque, but they were not attacks on the mosque or Muslims as such) Government – Police Stations, Military Bases, and other government buildings Schools – Attacks on Schools Media – Attacks on Media houses, cellphone towers, or other media institutions Other Civilian Targets – These are incidents where religious identity could not be confirmed or where the target was a beer parlor or other place of entertainment. However, it should be noted that Boko Haram views places of entertainment, beer parlors, etc as “Christian” and targets them accordingly.
