Two more churches hit by bombs

KADUNA (AFP) – Two more church bombings rocked Christian-dominated towns in  Kaduna Sunday, bringing to five the number of explosions in the northern state, a local emergency official said.

“There were two simultaneous bomb attacks on churches in Nassarawa and Barnawa in the south of Kaduna this morning. We are yet to get information on casualities,” Kaduna spokesman for the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) Aliyu Mohammed told AFP.

Southern Kaduna is some four kilometres from Kaduna city and about two hours drive from Zaria, where three churches were hit by bomb explosions early Sunday. There have been no immediate reports of casualties.
