Nigerian Mourners Murdered

Nigerian Christians attending a church service for those murdered on Thursday were themselves attacked. Up to twenty mourners were killed. An individual who identified himself as a spokesman for Boko Haram has claimed responsibility. The same group had given Christians a three-day ultimatum on Sunday that required Christians to leave the region. With the expiry of the reprieve arriving, open season has begun.

A witness stated that the attackers chanted "God is great" during one of the multiple attacks.

Although this is clearly not a time for jokes, I can't help but think of the opening credits of Monty Python and the Holy Grail again. Here is an inappropriate paraphrase:

'Those responsible for the sacking of those who have been sacked have also sacked those who were mourning victims who had previously been sacked"

What is the likelihood that this is going to end anytime soon?
