A bomb has exploded at a church in a restive central Nigerian city on the dividing line between the nation's Muslim north and Christian south, causing unknown injuries.
 The blast happened Sunday morning at an Evangelical Church Winning All church in the city of Jos. Mark Lipdo of a Christian advocacy group, the Stefanos Foundation, said the blast caused injuries. Police could not be immediately reached for comment.

Thousands have died in and around Jos over the last decade in religious rioting and fighting. While the violence cuts across faiths, it often has its roots in political and economic disputes between the many ethnic groups living in the nation's fertile central belt region

 According to sahara reporters, A massive bomb blast has ripped through St Agnes church on Rukuba road in Jos city, the capital of Plateau state. A suicide bomber drove straight to the altar of the church before exploding its bomb rigged car killing at least four people. St Agnes church is adjacent to various churches and a few minutes away from one of Maxwell Khobe barracks, on of the largest army barracks in the city.
