Seven people were killed and more than 100 were injured in a suicide bombing in Nigerian church.

An SUV filled with explosives was driven into St. Rita's Catholic church at 9 a.m. during mass, killing at least seven people and injuring many more, said the BBC.

The bombing sparked retaliation from youth in the area and young people armed with machetes killed two people, according to USA Today.

The church is located in Northern Nigeria and Nigeria is predominantly Christian in the south and Muslim in the north.
