At least five people were killed and eight were injured Sunday in a bomb attack on a Catholic church in a mainly Christian area of Kano, the largest city in Nigeria's north, police said.
Police spokesman Frank Mba told AFP that the bomb was "probably an IED (improvised explosive device) thrown from across the street" at the Saint Charles Catholic church in Kano's Sabon Gari district, which has suffered previous attacks by the Islamist group Boko Haram.
