Boko Haram kills 32, wounds 80 in Nigeria

Nigeria,November 18: A night-time suicide bombing blamed on Boko Haram extremists killed 32 people and wounded 80 on Tuesday at a truck stop in northeastern Nigeria, officials said.

Tuesday night's blast breaks a three-week hiatus in bombings after a string of suicide attacks culminated in twin explosions in mosques in two northeastern cities that killed 42 people and wounded more than 100 on 23 October.

One of the mosques attacked was in Yola, capital of Adamawa, where the insurgents struck again. It was the third suicide bombing in as many months in a city overflowing with some of the 2.3 million refugees driven from their homes by the Islamic uprising.

At least 32 people were killed and about 80 wounded victims were evacuated to hospitals after Tuesday night's blast, coordinator Sa'ad Bello of the National Emergency Management Agency said.
