Nigeria: Blasts In Jos Church


At least three people have been killed in a suspected suicide car bombing at a Catholic church in the restive central Nigerian city of Jos, officials say.


The car was apparently stopped before it could enter the church compound, one report said.


No group has said it carried out the attack.


A bombing at a Jos church two weeks ago killed three people and injured nearly 40. Islamist militants from Boko Haram said they carried out that attack.


Emergency officials were assisting the victims at St Finbar's church in the Rayfield area, a spokesman for the national emergencies agency said.


Three people were confirmed as dead – in addition to the bomber – and several others were in a critical condition, spokesman Yushau Shuaib told AFP news agency.


"The bomb exploded before he could get to the church," he added.


Security forces have cordoned off the area around the church
