2nd church bombing in Nigerian city
July 14, 2011
A bomb was thrown at a Protestant church in the central Nigerian city of Suleja on the evening of July 11 as a prayer service was being held. No one was injured in the attack, though the bomb damaged the church’s walls.
The attack follows a July 10 church bombing in the same city; three died in the first attack.
The militant Islamist group Boko Haram--which means “Western education is sin”--is suspected in the attacks.
