Nigeria: 32 dead and 80 hurt after an explosion in Yola city, blamed Boko Haram terrorists
At least 32 people are dead and about 80 people are hurt after an explosion in the Nigerian city of Yola, according to various reports.
The blast took place at a fruit and vegetable market near a main road, Al Jazeera reports.
No one claimed responsibility, but the news agency reports that the blame will likely be placed on Boko Haram, the group that has killed thousands as it attempts to promote Islamic law in Nigeria.
Tuesday night’s blast breaks a three-week hiatus in bombings after a string of suicide attacks culminated in twin explosions in mosques in two northeastern cities that killed 42 people and wounded more than 100 on Oct. 23.
