KADUNA, Nigeria (Reuters) - - The death toll from a double
suicide bomb attack on a church inside a military barracks in
northern Nigeria stood at 15 on Monday, the state governor said.
Two bombers struck a church on Sunday in the Jaji barracks
in Kaduna state, one of many in the north where the Islamist
sect Boko Haram is waging an insurgency to try to impose Sharia
law on Nigeria. The previous death toll was announced as 11.
Kaduna State Governor Ibrahim Yakowa gave the new figure
while on a visit to Jaji late on Monday, but did not say why the
toll had gone up.
