Burning mosques and killing several people in an outbreak of anti-Muslim violence that followed deadly protests against caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad.

Residents and witnesses in the southern, predominantly Christian city of Onitsha said several Muslims with origins in the north were beaten to death by mobs that burned two mosques there.

"The mosque at the main market has been burnt and I've counted at least six dead bodies on the streets," Izzy Uzor, an Onitsha resident and businessman, told the AP by telephone on Tuesday.

"The whole town is in a frenzy and people are running in all directions."

The violence appeared to be in reprisal for anti-Christian violence on Saturday in the mostly Muslim northern city of Maiduguri in which thousands of Muslims protesting against
caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad attacked Christians and burned churches.

At least 18 people were killed.

I would say that these people are no more Christian than Pat Roberson is, or no more Christian than bin Laden is Islamic.
