Officials: Another Explosion In Jos, Nigeria
An explosion ripped through an outdoor venue crowded with soccer fans watching a European final Saturday night and many are feared dead in the Nigerian city of Jos, officials said, four days after twin car bombs blamed on Islamic extremists killed at least 130 people in the central city. Police Superintendent Felicia Anslem confirmed the blast Saturday night which went off not far from the bustling marketplace that was targeted in Tuesday’s bomb attack. The Islamic extremist group Boko Haram, which has been threatening to sell nearly 300 abducted schoolgirls into slavery recently, has been waging a two-pronged campaign of urban bombings and rural attacks on northeastern villages.
