Where is Steve Coll?

I mentioned Steve Coll in a recent post, and so I thought I should check out what he is doing right now. Well... it was worth the effort. He is reporting from Nigeria... on the "Nigerian Taliban," the Boko Haram movement. For now, the latter seem to have been subjected to a mini-Hama sort of outcome (in a town called Maiduguri). This chapter of Nigerian history was, again, bloody and violent, as others before, in other words.
