Boko Haram Islamists Bomb Christian Church & Open Fire on Congregation – 22 Dead
Boko Haram Islamists bombed a Christian Church in Adamawa state in Nigeria on Sunday then opened fire on the congregation. 22 people were killed.
The BBC reported:
Earlier on Sunday in neighbouring Adamawa state, gunmen attacked a busy church service in Waga Chakawa village, an army spokesman said.
They set off bombs and fired into the congregation, killing 22 people, before burning houses and taking residents hostage during a four-hour siege, witnesses told Reuters news agency.
The army suspects Boko Haram of being behind both attacks.
Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan sacked his military high command earlier this month.
