Nigeria: 25 killed in bomb blasts in Kaduna and Zaria churches, not claimed by Boko Haram. 80 wounded in riots between christians and muslims
Suicide bombers targeted four churches in a series of attacks in northern Nigeria on Sunday, killing at least 25 people, many of them children, and prompting reprisal attacks.
As many as 80 people were also reported wounded in the restive Nigeria region that has become a centre of ethnic strife in the country.
In Kaduna city, where 10 people were killed inside a Catholic church and 29 wounded, the attacks also led to reprisals by Christian youth against local Muslims.
Following reports of violence, the government imposed a 24-hour curfew to prevent the situation from going out of hand.
In all, two churches were attacked in Kaduna city while another two were bombed in a nearby Zaria city.
