Sunday Bombs: Suicide bombers attack churches in Zaria
« on: June 17, 2012, 12:56:28 PM »
Explosions hit two churches in Zaria Sunday, in the latest violence in the region, emergency services and residents said.



It was not immediately clear if there were any casualities, but residents said they feared many people had been killed.

The state-run National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) said the blasts happened in the Wusasa and Sabon-Gari districts of Zaria, previously targeted by the Islamist group Boko Haram.

“NEMA has confirmed two explosions at Wusasa and Dabon-Gari in Zaria, Kaduna state. Rescue and security officers have moved to the scene,” spokesman Yushau Shuaib said in a statement.

Residents said many people, mostly worshippers, were feared dead in the attacks on the Christ the King Catholic Cathedral and ECWA GoodNews Church.

The Question is: What exactly has Churches got to do with Boko Haram or these Church Enemies...Is this going to turn to a Religious War eventually?
