Suicide bomber kills at least 10 worshipers at St. Finbar's Catholic Church in central Nigeria
CNS News reports a suicide car bomber attacked a Catholic Church Sunday in the middle of Mass, killing at least 10 people in the latest violence targeting a church in a central Nigerian city plagued by unrest, a state official said.
The bomb detonated as worshippers attended the final Mass of the day at St. Finbar's Catholic Church in Jos, a city where thousands have died in the last decade in religious and ethnic violence. Security at the gate of the church's compound stopped the suspicious car and the bomber detonated his explosives during an altercation that followed, Plateau state spokesman Pam Ayuba said
The blast damaged the church's roof, blew out its windows and destroyed a portion of the fence surrounding the church's compound, Ayuba said. At least 10 people died, Ayuba said, while many others were wounded in the blast, including soldiers who also had been stationed at the church.
"He destroyed so many things," the spokesman said.
Killing Christians never seems to be as newsworthy as when Muslims get whacked. Why is that?
