Dozens die in Nigeria bus blasts


In Nigeria, dozens of people have been killed by two major blasts at a bus station near the capital Abuja. The force of the explosion ripped through the terminal during morning rush hour.

Reuters news agency reported at least 35 people had died in the blasts, with more than two dozen critically injured.

Suspicion has already fallen on the Islamist militant group Boko Haram, though no group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack.

Boko Haram, has hit Nigeria’s capital several times in the past and is blamed for killing at least 1500 people in the north-east of the country this year.
