Two car bombs hit a Protestant church yesterday, killing at least 11 people, a military spokesman said.

The first explosion occurred after a church service at a major military establishment in Jaji, in Kaduna state in northern Nigeria.

There was a second blast outside the church minutes later. The attacks came a month after a church bombing in the same state killed at least seven people.
