    BAUCHI, Nigeria (Reuters) - Police in the Nigerian city of Bauchi said on Monday they had foiled a bomb attempt in a crowded church, days after clashes between Christian and Muslim youths killed at least 19 people.

    The director of the Nigerian secret service in Bauchi said the device was brought into the city's United Methodist Church during a packed Sunday service. The security forces were tipped off and bomb disposal experts were able to detonate it safely.

    "The perpetrators of this act are terrorists. We have detonated the bomb. The impact would have been devastating," State Security Service director Adeola Ajayi said.

    Bauchi, the capital of Bauchi state, lies in north-central Nigeria about 120 km (75 miles) northeast of Jos, where more than 200 people have died in ethnic and religious clashes over the past month.

    The tension is rooted in decades of resentment between indigenous groups, mostly Christian or animist, who are vying for control of fertile farmlands and for economic and political power with migrants and settlers from the Muslim north.
