On Christmas Day, several churches were bombed in three towns in central and northern Nigeria. At the St. Theresa Catholic Church in Madalla at least 37 people were reported killed.

The upsurge in anti-Christian violence is just the latest in a string of attacks carried out by the Boko Haram terrorist group in the past two years.
