A suicide bomber smashed his explosives-laden car through the gates of a packed church during Sunday service in Jos, central Nigeria, killing three people and injuring dozens, church leaders said. Witnesses said a black car crashed through the gate of a perimeter fence and exploded a few metres from the wall of an 800-seater church hall in the volatile city. The attack is the latest in a country grappling with almost daily bomb and gun assaults, most of them blamed on the Islamist sect Boko Haram. "The bomber drove at top speed, and there was a loud explosion and everything was black," said churchgoer Ezekiel Gomos, who said he had seen a black car driving fast towards the church hall around 30 minutes into the service.
