21 Dead after explosion at Nigerian Shopping Mall

The national police of Nigeria are reporting 21 deaths and 17 injuries in an explosion that hit a shopping plaza in Abuja, the nation's capital, earlier today.

No entity has claimed responsibility for the blast. Boko Haram, the militant group behind the recent kidnappings of dozens of Nigerian girls, claimed two attacks in Abuja in April that together killed 120 people, and warned of further violence. An attack on a World Cup viewing party in Damaturu, Nigeria that killed 14 people earlier this month was also suspected to be the work of the group.
