A suicide car bomber attacked a Catholic church celebrating Mass in northern Nigeria on Sunday, killing two people and wounding another 45 in a region under assault by a radical Islamist sect, officials said.
Later, at a nearby hospital, Bauchi police Deputy Commissioner T. Stevens told journalists told that the bomber had been stopped at the church's gate, where he detonated the explosives packed inside his car.
Commissioner Stevens said no group or individual had claimed responsibility for the attack, though suspicion immediately fell on Boko Haram.
