KANO - Gunmen opened fire on a church service in northern Nigeria's Gombe state on Thursday, killing six people and wounding 10, the church's pastor said, adding that his wife was amongst the dead.

"The attackers started shooting sporadically. They shot through the window of the church, and many people were killed including my wife," Pastor Justin Jauro told Reuters by telephone from his Deeper Life church in Nasarawa. "Many of my members who attended the church service were also injured."
