It's not just McDonald's which is a global brand, it seems like the Taliban is the next universal franchise for the enthusiastic terrorist. It is reported that a group of Nigerian Islamist militants is barricaded inside a district in the city of Maiduguri, after two days of violence in the country's north. A BBC reporter in the city says the Islamists, known locally as the "Taliban", are shooting at anyone approaching their stronghold. I think we can safely assume these may not be the mythical "moderate" Taliban discussed yesterday, don't you?
