5 killed in blast in Nigeria

  • At least five people were killed and 12 injured in a blast in northern Nigeria’s Bauchi state, media reports said.

    The explosion, which occurred near a bus station in Azare town, was apparently triggered by a bag packed with explosives left beside the station.

    The Nigerian militant group Boko Haram has often targeted the town in the past.

    The state police said they would “get the culprits behind" the bombing.
