IMG-20111225-00307(Codewit.com) – A bomb exploded in a Catholic church on the outskirts of the Nigerian capital Abuja during Christmas prayers Sunday and emergency services said they did not have enough ambulances available to evacuate all the dead and the wounded.

The precise number of dead and wounded in the blast was not immediately available.

“Yes, I can confirm to you that there has been a bomb blast in a church in Madala (suburb),” National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) spokesman Yushau Shuaibu said by telephone.

“We are presently there, evacuating the dead and the injured, but unfortunately we don’t have IMG00200-20111225-0806enough ambulances. Most of our ambulances have gone to operate on the major highways of the country,” he added.

The blast in St Theresa’s Church in Madala, an Abuja suburb blew out windows of at least one house nearby, a witness said.
