Two church terror attacks in Nigeria

JOS, Nigeria (UPI) -- At least five people were killed in two separate attacks on Christian churches in Nigeria Sunday, witnesses said, and three died in clashes with police.

The fatalities were reported in the city of Jos, where a suicide bomber apparently drove a car packed with explosives into the Christ Chosen Church of God and leveled the building during Sunday services. At least 48 people were injured, CNN reported.

The second attack was reported in the northern city of Biu, Voice of America said.

The radical Muslim terrorist group Boko Haram claimed responsibility for both attacks, the BBC World Service said.

Previous church attacks in Nigeria resulted in a declaration of a state of emergency in several northern states; however there have been no apparent major breakthroughs in the campaign against the militant Islamic group.

The government's apparent lack of effectiveness stirred up public anger in the aftermath of the Jos attack.

CNN said an angry crowd drove police away from the church and set up checkpoints in the area and that three people were killed in clashes with officers.

Some witnesses angrily asked how the car made it through government checkpoints in the area and drove past several other churches without interference before plowing into Christ Chosen.
