SULEJA - A bomb blast at a church in Suleja, a satellite town on the outskirts of Nigeria's capital, Abuja, killed three people and seriously wounded seven on Sunday, the Red Cross said.

"Three dead, seven critically injured (after) bomb explosion at Suleja, Niger State," a Red Cross spokesman said. The police and emergency agencies said there had been an explosion but would not confirm any deaths or give details on the cause.

Suleja was the target of a deadly bomb attack at its electoral office on the eve of April's parliamentary election.

Security in Nigeria's capital has been tight in recent weeks after a bomb outside national police headquarters last month by suspected members of an Islamist sect killed several people.

Police say Boko Haram, which says it wants a wider application of sharia Islamic law across Africa's most populous nation, has been behind almost daily attacks in northeastern Nigeria, mainly around Maiduguri, the capital of Borno state.
