Nigeria: Bomb And Church Attacks Across Country

"Goodluck Jonathan promised that the bombers would ""face the law"". No group has said it carried out the attacks.

The Christmas Eve blasts happened in an area where up to 1,000 people died in sectarian clashes this year.

The region straddles Nigeria's mainly Muslim north and the Christian south.

About 74 people were wounded in the bomb blasts. Some are in a critical condition.

In a separate development, at least six people died in attacks on churches by suspected Islamists in the north-eastern city of Maiduguri.

Speaking in the capital Abuja, President Jonathan said: ""I assure all Nigerians that we shall unearth those behind the Jos bomb explosion and apprehend them to face the law."""
