Easter bombing kaduna 20120408

Soldiers chase away onlookers at the scene of the blast off the street in northern Nigerian city of Kaduna on April 8, 2012 after a car explosion killed at least 38 people, most of them commercial motorcyclists near a church. The explosion, a stark reminder of Christmas Day attacks that left dozens of people dead in Africa's most populous nation and largest oil producer, hit the city of Kaduna, a major cultural and economic centre in the north. Motorcycle taxi drivers and passers by appeared to have borne the brunt of the blast, and body parts littered the area.
