    "(BBC) — Bomb blasts targeting Christmas Day church services in two Nigerian cities have left at least 28 people dead, with three more attacks on other towns.

    The Islamist group Boko Haram said it had attacked St Theresa’s Church in Madalla, near the capital Abuja, killing 27 people.

    A second explosion shortly after hit a church in the central city of Jos. A policeman died during gunfire.

    Three attacks in northern Yobe state targeted a church and security forces.

    Two hit the town of Damaturu, and a third struck Gadaka. Yobe state has been the epicentre of violence between security forces and Boko Haram militants.

    National Emergency Management Agency (Nema) spokesman Yushau Shuaibu told the BBC that the latest Abuja explosion had happened in the street outside the church.

    He said the church – which can hold up to 1,000 people – had been badly affected by the blast, and the number of dead was likely to rise."
