Three people were killed and 46 injured in a suicide bombing at the Catholic cathedral in Bauchi, a city of 500,000 in north-central Nigeria. Two policemen who had been guarding the cathedral in the largely Muslim city were among the injured. 

The Islamist terrorist organization Boko Haram is suspected of carrying out the attack.

“Christians are attacked on a weekly basis,” said Rt. Rev. Musa Tula, the local Anglican bishop. “We need prayers because real protection can only come from God. We urgently need prayers from our brethren around the world for the peace of Bauchi State.”
