Nigeria: 21 Dead in Terrorist Attack on Shopping District

At least 21 people were killed on Wednesday when a suspected bomb tore through a crowded shopping district in the Nigerian capital Abuja during rush hour, according to Reuters.

It was not immediately clear who was responsible for the blast and no one claimed responsibility. However, the Boko Haram terrorist group has increasingly targeted civilians in its bloody five-year insurgency.
