Series of blasts at Nigerian bus stations kill at least 37 – report

A series of bomb blasts at bus stations in Nigeria's northeastern city of Gombe have killed at least 37 people, according to Al Jazeera sources. Meanwhile Reuters, citing a Red Cross official, reported 29 killed and 60 injured. The first bomb was detonated by a female suicide bomber as around 6:00pm GMT near the Dadin Kowa bus terminal as people gathered to pray at a nearby mosque, Reuters reported. Minutes later a second explosion happened near the same station. About an hour later two more consecutive blasts occurred at the gate of the Duku bus station and at market nearby. No one has immediately claimed responsibility for the blasts, but similar attacks in the past have been blamed on the Boko Haram terrorist group which is very active in the region. Last Friday at least 50 people were killed in a series of bombings at a market in the same city.
