A Nigerian Christian went into hiding after her Muslim students threatened to kill her: Nigerian teacher flees Koran row (Via LGF)
A Christian teacher has gone into hiding in the northern Nigerian city of Kano after offending her Muslim pupils.
During an economics class, the teacher reprimanded a teenage girl for not concentrating and threw the book she was reading onto the floor.
This outraged students as it was a part of the Koran, Islam's most holy book. Police arrived to calm their protests after all the school's teachers fled.
