Boko Haram is aiming to carve out a separate Islamic state in Nigerias northern states, where it plans to implement a strict form of Sharia law.

EDIT: ....It appears that I am wrong about the four students burnt alive being Christian. It appears to be a tribal murder in a clan/village; the victims having been accused of a theft scam.
