Reprisal attacks kill 10 after Nigeria church bomb

JOS, Nigeria - Reprisal attacks by Christian youths in the central Nigerian city of Jos killed more than 10 people on Sunday, after suspected Islamist militants bombed a church, the health commissioner for Jos said.
"The situation is bad. Several were killed in the reprisal attacks, more than 10," Sati Dakwat told Reuters, after a bomb blast in a Catholic church in the city killed three people.
In the past decade Jos has become the main flashpoint for tensions between Nigeria's Christian and Muslim communities.
