I found traces of explosion (and missing villagers) in my village.

Did villagers aggro some creepers, or was it someone else on the server?

Next time could you tell us if it's in SMP or in Single Player ? :) – Depado May 21 '12 at 8:52
It is SMP. I thought it could be inferred from the words "someone other from the server" :-) – catbert Jun 3 '12 at 0:43
It may not have been a griefer. Mobs can sometimes accidentally trigger aggro on each other, and if one triggered it on a creeper, it could have resulted in this explosion. – Zibbobz Jan 28 '15 at 18:20

No, only zombies attack the villagers. A creeper may have tried to blow up someone else or else it could have been a griefer.

The creepers wont attack villagers. Only zombies will and sometimes during a siege they will gang up on one villagers door and break it down allowing them to kill the creeper inside!! A creeper could also blow up but this is highly unlikely as the player is the only one who can anger it.

Creepers don't attack villagers. It was probably a griefer.

Minecraft is created such that creepers cannot attack villagers. Other mobs such as the zombie and griefer will attack a villager. However, creepers may kill or damage villagers if you (or another player) agitates it. Happy playing! :)
