Sounds like BodhGaya has been considered as a target for a while:

This is really sad, and odd that it was little reported in the west. I really hope there is no retaliation and that things don't escalate because of this.

A bodhisattva does not become weary of evil beings nor does he commit the error of bringing forth thoughts inclined to reject them and cast them aside. Avatamsaka Sutra, ch. 25

PS: i'am from some region of the world where was some terrorist attacs. In my own town, on the public place, where my mother used to work, there was one explosion; in the neighbor town, town of some members of my family, there was explosion of some entire 10-floors buildings.
Never in my mind there was a mental formation based on hate or killing, and never i would like to go and kill islamic terrorist, i even read the Coran, and have many of musim friends. I have just change country with my family.

I know what i'am speaking about.

Marc, are you ready to kill ?
Imagine, you take a gun, and you blow his face off, becasue of his wrong view. Are you ready to do that?

It's time to move ahead, leave the leaves and books behind, and start carving dhamma into stone wherever we can.

Vidio's name is : "He killed me!"

It's a war jurnalist, who make a film on war, and at the end of this vidio he die, he was killed by a sniper, and he scream "He killed me! He killed me!"...
