Bulgaria: Easter Bomb Explodes in Nigeria

A car bomb went off in the Nigerian city of Kaduna Sunday, killing an undetermined number of people.

The wreckage was such that it was difficult to put an exact number on deaths, The Daily Times of Nigeria says, citing a police spokesperson.

Reports cited by international media say at least 20 people were killed.

The Islamist sect Boko Haram, responsible for the attacks last Christmas that killed at least 40 people in the north, had threatened to carry out attacks against the Christian community during the Holy Week.
