    In this photo taken Friday, April. 27, 2012, Ogechukwu Osih, a reporter with Channel Television browses news in the news room in Isheri, Abeokuta, Nigeria. Long underpaid, threatened and bribed, Nigeria's journalists face a new threat after a radical Islamist sect bombed the offices of a major newspaper in the country. The sect known as Boko Haram claimed the suicide car bombing Thursday at the offices of the influential newspaper ThisDay in Nigeria's capital Abuja and an attack on an office the publication shared with others in the city of Kaduna, violence that killed at least seven people. The sect later issued a statement via an Internet publication saying it would `'hit the media hard," a major threat by a group known to have killed at least two journalists .

    FILE - This file image taken from video posted by Boko Haram sympathizers made available on Wednesday, Jan. 10, 2012 shows Imam Abubakar Shekau, the leader of the radical Islamist sect Boko Haram. Nigeria is opening a secret detention center to hold and interrogate suspected high-level members of a radical Islamist sect responsible for hundreds of killings this year alone, a security official has told The Associated Press. While the facility could create a more cohesive effort among disparate and sometimes feuding security agencies in Nigeria to combat the sect known as Boko Haram, it raises concerns about its possible use for torture and illegal detentions.
