A bomb explosion near a church in the northern Nigerian city of Kaduna on Easter morning has killed and wounded an unclear number of people, a resident and an official said.

"From my balcony, I could see policemen loading the dead and the injured into waiting vans," one resident said by phone. A spokesman for the national emergency management agency confirmed there were casualties, but could not say if any had died.

The explosion hit a business area close to Sardauna crescent, a spokesman for the national emergency management agency told Reuters.
