Sydney Morning Herald – A suicide car bomber drove into a north Nigeria church’s compound on Sunday and detonated his explosives as worshippers left an early morning service, killing at least eight people and wounding dozens more, officials and witnesses said.

The bomber targeted the Living Faith church, in a neighbourhood near the airport in Bauchi, the capital of Bauchi state. The blast caught many people outside the church without any cover to protect themselves, causing heavy casualties, witnesses said.
