Bomb rocks cash point in Nigeria
A bomb concealed in a black plastic bag killed several people at a cash point in north Nigeria's Bauchi state yesterday near the scene of a recent bus station attack blamed on Boko Haram, witnesses said.
Multiple residents of the targeted town of Azare told AFP that the bomber approached people who had queued up outside a First Bank branch at roughly 10:30 am (0930 GMT).
"A man came on foot to this ATM where a large crowd was taking turns to withdraw money," said Lamara Ibrahim, who was at the scene.
"It was while they were talking to him that the bomb exploded," said Ibrahim.
