DOZEN KILLED IN ABUJA BUS BLASTS

Date:

Dozens of people have been killed in two blasts that rocked a crowded bus station on the outskirts of Nigeria’s capital, Abuja.

The blast happened as commuters were about to board buses and taxis to go to work in central Abuja,

Eyewitnesses said there were dead bodies scattered around the area.

This may have been another attack by the Islamist militant group known as Boko Haram, said the source.

Eyewitness Badamsi Nyanya said he had seen 40 bodies being evacuated; other eyewitnesses say they saw rescue workers and police gathering body parts.

The blast ripped a hole four feet deep (1.2 metre) in the ground of Nyanya Motor Park, some 16km (10 miles) from the city centre, and destroyed more than 30 vehicles, causing secondary explosions as their fuel tanks ignited and burned.
