    KANO, Nigeria: At least 21 people were killed when an explosion ripped through crowds watching World Cup football in northern Nigeria, in the latest violence targeting fans of the game. There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the blast in the Nayi-Nama area of Damaturu on Tuesday night but suspicions immediately fell on Boko Haram militants, who have previously attacked big screen venues showing matches. Local residents in Nayi-Nama said the bomb appeared to have been hidden in a motorized rickshaw outside the Crossfire venue, where crowds had gathered to watch tournament hosts Brazil play Mexico.
