Kano blasts: Nigerians killed at bus station

Post by Admin on Tue Mar 19, 2013 1:37 pm

At least 20 people have been killed in a series of explosions at a bus station in the northern Nigerian city of Kano.

Several buses were destroyed in the attack in the Sabon Gari district - which is home to many Christians from southern Nigeria.

No group has said it was behind the blasts but Islamist militants from the Boko Haram group have attacked Kano in the past.

It is the largest city in the mainly Muslim north of Nigeria.

One eyewitness told the BBC that he had seen 20 bodies after Monday's blasts.

Several witnesses told Reuters that one of the buses targeted was full when the explosion happened, and was completely destroyed.
'Many people dead'

"I ran for my dear life and managed to get out of the park after the second blast," one witness told the news agency. "Many people are lying dead."
