US bishops rue cathedral bombing in Nigeria

Catholic World News - September 28, 2012

Cardinal Timothy Dolan of New York, the president of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), and Bishop Richard Pates of Des Moines, chairman of the USCCB’s Committee on International Justice and Peace, have sent a message of condolence to the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of Nigeria following the terrorist attack on the cathedral in Bauchi.

“The suicide bombing was horrible and totally unacceptable,” the prelates wrote. “The perpetrators must be brought to justice.”

“We will be contacting the US State Department to urge them to intensify their support for Nigerian government and civil society efforts to end these senseless attacks, to address the root causes of the violence, and to rebuild the social fabric of the country,” they added.
