Blasts hit two Nigeria bus stations, at least 27 dead


KANO, Nigeria: Two blasts rocked bus stations in embattled northern Nigeria on Tuesday (Wednesday in Mania), killing at least 27 people, as violence continues to rage less than five weeks ahead of general elections. The first bombing, which killed 17, ripped through a station on the outskirts of Potiskum, in northeast Yobe state, which has been targeted repeatedly by Boko Haram Islamists. Roughly four hours later, two men blew themselves up after getting off a bus at a busy terminus in Kano, the north’s largest city and another frequent Boko Haram target. Ten people were killed.
