AFRICA : NIGERIA : CHURCH BOMBINGS CONTINUE KILLING HUNDREDS

On Sunday, Nov. 25, 2012 a pair of suicide bombs exploded at a St. Andrew's Protestant Church on a military base in Jaji, Kaduna State, Nigeria in Africa. 11 people were killed and 30 injured. Suspect in the case is the group Boko Haram which targets churches with bombs. This group is thought to have killed 760 this year alone in attacks.
The new Cardinal John Onaiyekan of Nigeria said, “Once again, a great tragedy has taken place but in this case the circumstances are particularly worrisome.”
The Cardinal added: “This attack took place within one of the highest military establishment in Nigeria, surely one of the most secure premises you can think of.”
He suggested to the goverment: “Let us hope this particular incident will be a wake-up call to the government that they need to do more than what they are doing at the moment.”
