Bomb explodes in Catholic Church an hour before children’s confirmation ceremony.

Two people have been injured as a bomb exploded inside a Catholic church in the city of Beni in DR Congo’s conflict-plagued east on Sunday.

The head of police in Beni’s town hall Narcisse Muteba Kashale told AFP that the explosion occurred just an hour before a children’s confirmation ceremony was due to be held.

Kashale disclosed that the explosion occurred at 6:00 am (0400 GMT) and experts from the UN’s mission to DR Congo had told “us it is a home-made bomb, a bomb that was set up for an ambush”.
