Child Bomber Kills 6 in Nigeria

A child bomber killed up to six people Tuesday outside a bus station in the heartland of the Boko Haram insurgency in northeastern Nigeria.
Witnesses reported seeing a "young girl" trying to get into the station in the Yobe State capital Damaturu around 7:00 a.m. local time and refusing to be searched by security guards at the gate before blowing herself up, AFP reported.
Bloomberg put the girl's age at around 12, citing a bus driver who witnessed the blast. The attack came just hours after United Nations chief Ban Ki-moon wrapped up a two-day visit to Africa's largest economy during which he hailed its "greater stability and peace" under its new leader as he commemorated a deadly 2011 attack on the global body by Boko Haram militants.
No group immediately claimed responsibility, but the blast that wounded up to 28 people bore the hallmarks of Boko Haram attacks.
