(Reuters) - Two suicide bombs killed at least 11 people on Sunday at a church in a barracks in northern Nigeria, where the Islamist sect Boko Haram is waging a campaign of violence, the military said.

Army spokesman Bola Koleoso said a bus drove into the side of the St. Andrew Military Protestant Church at the Jaji barracks in Kaduna state and exploded at around 1105 GMT, five minutes after a service had started. Explosives inside a Toyota Camry were detonated outside the church ten minutes later, he said. The military said at least 30 were injured.

A military source who witnessed the attack said the second bomb was the most deadly, killing people who went to help the injured from the first blast. Witnesses said the barracks was cordoned off and ambulances carried the wounded to hospital.

Christians in the northern city of Kano yesterday were also targeted in a separate attack in which two motorcycle-riding gunmen killed a couple and their child as the family made their way to church. The family’s other child escaped the shooting unhurt.

  With Tommy Robinson of the EDL in jail as a political prisoner, along with the discouraging news that counter-jihad parties can't seem to get much above 10% of the vote in Europe, I think it is inevitable that Europe will eventually be totally Islamicized. 

  Right now, most of the violence is directed at the small Jewish minority, but as the demographics change, Europe will see violence directed against Christians, such as there is now in nerthern Nigeria.
