"The worst recent attack on a Catholic church came on December 25 last, when 44 people were killed during a mass to celebrate Christmas in a town outside the capital Abuja."
A suicide bomber blew himself up outside a Catholic church in the Nigerian city of Jos on Sunday, killing 10 people attending mass, the emergency services said.
The man drove his car towards St Finbar’s Catholic Church in the city before setting off a large explosion, killing himself and at least three churchgoers, emergency agency spokesman Yushau Shuaib told AFP.
“Three confirmed dead,” said Shuaib, adding that several others were in a critical condition.
“The bomb exploded before he could get to the church,” he said of the bomber.
Earlier Shuaib said three people had been injured in the attack and only the bomber had been killed.
