ABUJA - A bomb that exploded at a church in a satellite town on the outskirts of the Nigerian capital Abuja killed at least 19 people, a resident of the area said.

"I heard the blast. My house shook. I came out to the front of the church to see what was happening. I counted 19 bodies myself, many of them mutilated, and five destroyed vehicles," Tony Akpan told Reuters close to the scene.
