#544: Newsflash! Nigeria struck by earthquake

------------------------------------------------------------------------

A major earthquake measuring 9.1 on the Richter scale hit Nigeria.

As of this morning, 350,000 Nigerians have died while over a million
have been reportedly injured. Far more are homeless.

The country is almost totally ruined, and the government does not know
where to start with providing help.

The rest of the world is in shock -

The USA is sending troops to assist the country,

Brazil and China are sending food,

Europe is sending money and technical aid,

and South Africa is sending 350,000 replacement Nigerians.

but not with all those flies and death and stuff."
