A suicide bomber's SUV packed with explosives rammed into a Catholic church in northern Nigeria early Sunday, wounding at least 100 people and 7 people has been killed.
The church was seriously damaged. Soldiers secured the area and ambulance took injured victims to hospital.
One rescuer's vehicle window smashed by an angry youths armed with machetes and clubs beat to death two Muslims passing by St. Rita's Catholic church, where the killer attacks happened.
Bomber hits Kaduna states, a trade center and a major transportation hub for the surrounding agricultural areas with its rail and road junction. The population of Kaduna is at 760,084 as of the 2006 Nigerian census. The symbol of Kaduna is the crocodile, called kada in the native Hausa language.
Kaduna is also the scene of religious tension between Muslims and Christians. The city is separated until this day, with Muslims living mainly in the north of the city and Christians in the south.
No group immediately claimed responsibility for the killer attack, but Islamist militant group Boko Haram, a jihadist militant organization based in the northeast of Nigeria, involved in several attacks that killed hundreds this year alone.
