Kaduna, Nigeria — Two car bombs near a church in the northern region of Nigeria have killed at least twenty people.

The victims of the bomb that went of near a church in Kaduna were mainly taxi drivers and passer-by.

Christians in the north of Nigeria are increasingly victim of harassment and terrorist attacks by a radical Islamic sect called Boko Haram. During Christmas, Boko Haram bombed a church leaving 44 people dead. Boko Haram is estimated to have killed 1,000 people in various attacks since 2009.

Today’s attacks have not yet been claimed, but it is almost certain Boko Haram were the perpetrators.

Boko Haram calls for the implementation of a strict interpretation of Islamic law.
