NIGERIA: At least five people were killed and eight others
injured on Sunday in a bomb attack on a Catholic church in a mainly Christian
area of Kano, the largest city in Nigeria’s north, police said.
Police spokesman Frank Mba told AFP that the bomb was “probably
an IED (improvised explosive device) thrown from across the street” at the
Saint Charles Catholic church in Kano’s Sabon Gari district, which has suffered
previous attacks by the Islamist group Boko Haram.
