A powerful explosion has torn through a church in the Nigerian capital Abuja during a Christmas Day service.

Officials say they do not have enough ambulances to evacuate the dead and wounded from St Theresa’s church which is in the densely populated Madala area on the outskirts of the city.

One witness said he was at the service when a bomb exploded in the middle of the church.

Another who lives nearby said the windows in her home were blown out.
