A suicide car bomber attacked a Catholic church conducting Mass in northern Nigeria on Sunday, killing two people and wounding another 45 in a region under assault by a radical Islamist sect, officials said.
The attack took place in the city of Bauchi, which has seen a number of bombings and shootings blamed on the sect known as Boko Haram. The blast appeared to hit a parking lot alongside the St. John's Catholic Church in the city.
Police and military surrounded the church and did not allow journalists inside the cordon. Later at a nearby hospital, Bauchi deputy police commissioner T. Stevens told journalists told that the bomber had been stopped at the church's gate, where he detonated the explosives packed inside his car.
Doctors cautioned more could die from their injuries.
"The situation has been brought under control," Stevens said. "We have our men minding all areas."
Stevens said no group or individual had claimed responsibility for the attack, though suspicion immediately fell on Boko Haram. The sect, whose name means "Western education is sacrilege" in the Hausa language of Nigeria's north, has been waging an increasingly bloody fight against nation's weak central government. More than 680 people have died in drive-by killings and bombings blamed on Boko Haram this year alone, according to an AP count. The sect has demanded the release of all its captive members and has called for strict Shariah law to be implemented across the entire country.

Wonder how long it will take Obama to apologize for this one.
“There are more Anglicans at Church in Nigeria every Sunday morning than there are in the U.S. and Canada and Britain combined.”
The muslims won’t allow this for long. Islam is a scourge, a cancer in humanity.
Its source? Saudi Arabia and its endless funding of mosques and global jihad.
...God is all merciful and all just so we all, without exception, receive what we deserve in the afterlife...any argument to the contrary being base blasphemy and the mortal sin of presuming one knows the mind of God...
...some suicide bombers are in Heaven while those who sent them to die in sin transferred those sins to their own comeuppance books...Islam is not only a faith easily perverted to deadly evil but one that, when courageous adherents rebel against the archaic savagery of the Koran, take a stand and demand, as they are brutally slaughtered by the devout,blessings on those who seek some Christian grace in the TERTIARY FAITH./p>
Must’ve been an Amish extremist upset over the return of US taxpayer funded P!ss Chr!st to NYC.
I’m waiting for our “government” to express outrage. Like the outrage they expressed when someone made a dumb video that the jihadis used as an excuse to murder, firebomb, yell, scream and slobber on their dirty beards.
But there won’t be any outrage. Our “government,” like the jihadis, hates Christians.
