Churches bombed in Nigeria
A suicide bomber drove into a Protestant church in the central Nigerian city of Jos on February 26, killed three and injuring 38. The Islamist terrorist group Boko Haram claimed responsibility. In retaliation, Christian youths beat two Muslim passersby to death and burned a Muslim-owned shop near the church.
A second bomb exploded that same day near a church in Suleja, a city of 220,000 in central Nigeria. Five persons were injured.
