Witnesses say a large explosion has struck a church in Nigeria's capital, Abuja.

The blast hit the St. Theresa Church in Abuja's Madalla district on Sunday, as the church held Christmas morning services.

Initial reports suggest there are casualties.

Nigeria has endured a wave of violence in recent months, much of it blamed the radical Muslim sect Boko Haram.

Authorities say at least 68 people have been killed over the past few days in the country's north, in clashes between Boko Haram and government security forces.
