Sundays Bloody Sundays in Nigeria
Third weekend of church bombings in a row is "clear invitation to religious war," says Christian association.
Today militant Islamist group Boko Haram claimed responsibility for the suicide bombings of three churches Sunday that killed 50 Christians and Muslims and left hundreds wounded. The bombings provoked retaliatory violence that contributed to the death toll.
Reuters reported that the Christian Association of Kano, northern Nigeria’s main city, called the bombings “a clear invitation to religious war.”
