Suicide bomber explodes at Nigerian bus station, kills 4

A suicide bomber blew himself up and killed four hawkers Saturday at a bustling bus station in the northeast Nigerian town of Damaturu, witnesses said of the latest in a string of attacks this week by Nigeria’s home-grown Boko Haram extremists. Five bodies were brought to the hospital mortuary and 15 wounded people are being treated, according to a nurse who spoke on condition of anonymity because he is not allowed to speak to reporters. Most victims are women and children from among hawkers who sell smoked fish and packets of water at the exit gate to Damaturu Central Motor Park.
