Impose death penalty on Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev

Since there are already too many dead in the Boston Marathon bombing, why not one more?

Especially when that one was an equal participant in the evil, blood-thirsty carnage.

Fry him.

That is what Dzhokhar Tsarnaev deserves. Spark up the electric chair and don't look back.

Rot in hell Dzhokhar with your older brother, Tamerlan, who is already hopefully there. One down and one to go. Neither deserve to live.

Islamists storm Kenyan university, 14 reported killed

At least 14 people were killed on Thursday when Islamist militant group al Shabaab stormed a Kenyan university campus, taking Christians hostage and engaging security forces in a shootout for several hours.

With scores of students wounded and hundreds unaccounted for, police and soldiers surrounded Garissa University College. They sealed off the compound and were trying to flush out the gunmen, Kenyan police chief Joseph Boinet said.

Al Shabaab claimed responsibility for the pre-dawn attack near the Somali border. The group has links to al Qaeda and a record of raids on Kenyan soil in retaliation for Nairobi sending troops to fight it in its home state of Somalia.

Young girl believed to be suicide bomber who killed four, injured 46, in northeastern Nigeria

A girl suicide bomber as young as 10 blew herself up at a busy market in the northeastern Nigerian town of Potiskum on Sunday, killing four others and seriously wounding 46 people, a witness and hospital records show.

The girl who appeared no more than 10 years old, and according to some reports as young as seven, got out of a tricycle taxi in front of the cellphone market and detonated her explosives on Potiskum's main market day, according to survivor Anazumi Saleh, who suffered injuries to his head.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility but the attack bears all the signs of similar bombings by Boko Haram and raises fears that Nigeria's home-grown Islamic extremists are using kidnap victims as bombers.

In the early morning hours of Saturday, January 31, masked gunmen stormed the home of Nabil Mahrus, a 50-year-old Coptic Christian civil servant residing in al-Arish, the largest Sinai city.

In front of his family, they went up to the Coptic man and shot him several times in the head, killing him-but only after they had plundered the family and home.  According to the slain man's wife, her husband was murdered "only because he was a Copt [i.e., Christian]."
