A car burns at the scene of a bomb explosion at St. Theresa Catholic Church at Madalla, Suleja, just outside Nigeria’s capital Abuja, December 25, 2011. Five bombs exploded on Christmas Day at churches in Nigeria, one killing at least 27

Two suicide bombers drove vehicles packed with explosives into a Catholic church in northern Nigeria on Sunday, killing and wounding several, witnesses said.

The bombers both managed to get inside the packed St Monica’s church, in volatile ethnically and religiously mixed Kaduna, said witness Linus Lighthouse, who survived the blasts.
