Northern Nigeria is under Sharia law. Sadly, targeted mass killings of Christians there don't seem to get the attention in the west that they should. Boko Haram is a serious problem.

What is Sharia Law? What do you mean by Sharia Law? What is exactly the source of Sharia Law?? Where did Sharia Law say to kill Christians? or you just throwing some random words which got brainwashed by your media?

I prefer to do your research before typing and don't go to western or Christian or Zionist sites.

Yeah, I thought that was strange but I suppose if you focus on the northern, Muslim-majority part of Nigeria that might make sense. What confuses me more that the source says Colombia, a country where Catholicism is dominant, is the 6th most violent country for Christians. I'm guessing that maybe it has something to do with Protestants being persecuted? But I also know nothing about religion in Colombia so if anyone has an explanation please let me know.

As far as I can tell it's not sectarian. It's criminal groups who don't like christian messages which oppose their criminal activities.

Greatest human exposure to air pollution - I'm assuming that's on a percentage basis, with Qatar on the list, but China not.

Somehow I got stuck thinking all the answers needed to be an african country. I did get unstuck, but nearly got stuck again. Wasted too much time by then. Still managed to get all but 4 but could have done better.

Edit: all of which btw did have atleast one african answer, but had lost too much time allready. Not the first time this happened in a quiz like this, getting stuck thinking it has to meet certain extra requirements it actually doesn't.

Good quiz

I was kind of disappointed when Tokyo worked for "capital with the highest urban area population". It's supposed to be a "Name the country" quiz... (Yes, I'm complaining about a freebie. I prefer earning my right answers, whether than them being handed to me.)

ARGH! I thought the Libya flag was under 33% black because the middle section has the Islamic moon and star, but the area of the middle is slightly larger than other flags.

there is nothing called "Islamic moon". There is a huge misconception that the star and moon are related by any means to Islam and that totally wrong. Yes, most of flag that has moon and star are from Muslim countries but in fact it's not related to Islam. There is nothing mentioned in Islam or Islamic scriptures regarding taking the moon as a holy symbol. Saudi Arabia "Hijaz region" which is the region of the birthplace of Islam, they do not have any moon in their flag, also all countries of Arabian peninsula. North African countries developed the moon and star taken from the ottoman "Turkish" when they were colonized by them because the Ottomans developed the moon and star as they national symbol.
