Blast in northeast Nigeria kills three security agents
MAIDUGURI (Reuters) - An explosion outside a bank killed two soldiers and a policeman on Tuesday in the northeast Nigerian city of Maiduguri, the centre of an Islamist insurgency, witnesses and a mortuary attendant said.
The blast followed a coordinated strike on a bus park in the northern city of Kano on Monday involving several bombs, including one suicide bomber. Police said that attack killed at least 25 people.
