Failed bomb attacks against churches in Nigeria
Catholic World News - March 23, 2011
Two bomb attacks against Protestant churches in the central Nigerian region of Jos have failed. One bomb exploded prematurely, killing the three attackers; the other failed to detonate.
The attacks came a month before the nation’s presidential election. Following the failed church attacks, supporters of General Muhammadu Buhari, a presidential candidate and former military ruler of Nigeria, attacked non-Muslims in the streets of Jos.
