Boko Haram Militants says they are ready for dialogue (AFP)
13 June 2011

 (AFP) – A Nigerian Islamist sect behind a spate of bombings and shoot-and-run killings on Monday said it would lay down arms and open dialogue with authorities provided some conditions are met. One of the conditions Boko Haram set was the strict application of Sharia law in 12, or a third, of Nigeria's 36 states.
"We demand for the strict enforcement of sharia legal system in the Muslim-dominated states in the north as part of conditions for dialogue with the government," the group said in a statement anonymously delivered to journalists in the northeastern city of Maiduguri.
