Eleven people have died while at least 42 sustained injuries during the early morning suicide car bomb attack at the St. Finbars Catholic Church in Jos, Plateau State today. National Emergency officials said those with minor injuries have been treated and discharged from hospital.
The car was apparently stopped before it could enter the church compound, one report said.
The attacks started around around 8 am while the morning service was in progress. Two suicide bombers drove a car rigged with explosives through the gates of the church triggering a massive explosion.
No group has claimed responsibility for the attack.
