Three killed in Nigeria church suicide attack

A suicide car bomber struck a Catholic church conducting Mass in northern Nigeria’s troubled Bauchi city on Sunday, leaving at least three people dead, including a woman and a child, and 48 others injured in a region plagued by violence unleashed by a Islamist militant group.

The bomber rammed his explosives-laden car into a queue of church members who were being screened to go in for Sunday Mass, Red Cross official Adamu Abubakar said.

The explosion killed the bomber, a woman and a child. About 48 others were seriously injured in the blast, Abubaker said.

Eyewitnesses said the police cordoned off the premises of St John’s Catholic Church as soon as the explosion occurred.
