Sudanese-American novelist KOLA BOOF..was attacked by three gunmen outside Los Angeles this past Wednesday. Her publicist, Yi Nee Ling (909) 414-9850 is reporting what little the F.B.I. will allow her to reveal...but she says that three teenaged gunmen driving a mini-van and shouting in Arabic, "Traitors of Allah die!" opened fire on Kola Boof outside Los Angeles...and unfortunately, Kola Boof returned fire, shooting out the back tires of the gunmen's vehicle!!...Miss Boof was arrested for illegal use and possession of a fire arm...the gunmen escaped and Ms.Boof was not HIT...but her publisher North African Book Exchange is confirming that she was taken away by U.S. law enforcement to the U.S. Virgin Islands on Thursday morning where she can be better "protected" against the growing number of death threats directed at her by Muslim Arab fundamentalists in Sudan. For background, there are many reports online at Afrol.com, PRAVDA and Peacewomen, etc. KOLA BOOF, according to publicist Yi Nee Ling, has said of the F.B.I., "I'm being treated like a Queen!" and she has given a very detailed and DRAMATIC statement at the following link: http://poetwomen.50megs.com/custom2.html
