In the  numerous  explosion at a bus stop, Nigerian "Police say at least 22 people have died in a suicide car bombing that struck a bus station in northern Nigeria's busiest commercial center. Kano police chief Musa Daura said Tuesday that at least 65 others were injured in the attack that hit the city of Kano on Monday evening. He said two people drove an explosive-laden car into a station in a Christian enclave in the predominantly Muslim commercial center.   No group claimed responsibility for the attack but suspicion has fallen on the radical Islamic network Boko Haram.


The explosion came hours after another attack blamed on Boko Haram killed a teacher and injured three students in Maiduguri, the group's spiritual home. A local military spokesman said three sect members were killed in a counterattack," Associated Press reported.


Nigeria's  National Emergency Management Authority issued a statment which said that: "Rescuers and security personnel are yet to determine the source of explosions that occured this evening at a motor park,While casualty figures are not available at the moment, the seriously injured have been taken to hospital and bodies evacuated."
