Blast Near North Nigeria Beer Garden Kills Boy


Police in Nigeria say a bomb hidden inside a wheelbarrow exploded near a beer garden in the north of the country, killing a 6-year-old boy and wounding 10 other people.

Sunday's explosion in Bauchi struck a local bar many gather at to enjoy beer, despite the state being ruled under Shariah law. Bauchi state police commissioner Mohammed Ladan said the blast killed the boy, who was near the bar.

Adamu Abubakar, a Red Cross official, said security forces had surrounded the area.

Bauchi has been previously struck by sectarian violence sweeping across Nigeria's north from a radical Islamist sect known as Boko Haram. However, the sect did not immediately claim responsibility for the attack.
