Nigeria Church Attack Kills 3

An attack perpetrated today against a church in the city of Khos, in central Nigeria, led to three killed and ten wounded.

"We were in church for prayer and a kamikaze force through the door, entered the church and the bomb exploded," said John Haruna, Reverend of the Church of Christ in Nigeria, told AFP.

The attack has not yet been claimed, although suspicions fall on the radical Islamist group Boko Haram, responsible for many attacks in the country.
