Nigeria Suicide Attack: Bomber Attacks Church In Jos

JOS, Nigeria, June 10 (Reuters) - A suicide bomber blew himself up outside a church in the central Nigerian city of Jos on Sunday, witnesses said, as gunmen also attacked a church in the country's remote northeast.

There was no immediate word on casualties and no claim of responsibility, although attacking churches has become a trademark tactic of Islamist sect Boko Haram. (Reporting by Isa Abdulsalami; Writing by Tim Cocks; Editing by Robin Pomeroy)
