At least 12 people have been killed in a suicide car bomb attack near a church in the north of Nigeria.

Many are reported to have been injured in the blast but no group has said it carried out the attack.

It comes amid a wave of violence by the radical Islamic sect Boko Haram.

The group, whose name means "no to Western education", has carried out numerous attacks across northern Nigeria, killing hundreds of people.
