Jos - An official says a suicide car bomber has attacked a major church in a restive city in central Nigeria.

Plateau state spokesperson Pam Ayuba said the attack happened on Sunday morning in Jos at the main headquarters of the Church of Christ in Nigeria. Ayuba said the attack happened during the church's early service, which is packed with worshippers.

Ayuba said the car bomber died in the attack and others were wounded.

Jos has seen hundreds died in ethnic and religious violence in recent years. It also has been targeted by a radical Islamist sect known as Boko Haram.
