Boko Haram Bomb Kills 12 Christians in Nigeria's Kano

Boko Haram Bomb Kills 12 Christians in Nigeria's Kano

The death toll from a series of bomb blasts that rocked a mainly Christian area of northern Nigeria’s largest city of Kano has risen to 12, the military said on Tuesday, blaming Islamist group Boko Haram for the attacks.

The military blamed the attack on suspected Boko Haram members and said packages that caused the explosions were left in the mainly Christian Sabon Gari area of Kano.

At least four strong explosions were heard late Monday in the area and they appeared to target outdoor bars. The blasts shattered a recent lull in insurgent attacks in the city, which has previously seen heavy violence blamed on Boko Haram.
