ANOTHER BOMB BLAST ROCKS THE CITY OF JOS LAST NIGHT.

Posted on

ImageJOS, Nigeria — A bungled bomb killed three people, including a suicide bomber, in Nigeria’s Jos city Saturday night at about 9:30PM, a police official said, four days after twin car bombs blamed on Islamic extremists killed at least 200 people in the central city.

The senior police official said the bomber dropped a bag holding explosives at an outdoor theater crowded with people watching a European soccer cup final. He said the bomber and two others died. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he is not the official spokesman.

The venue is not far from the bustling marketplace that was targeted in Tuesday’s attack.

There were no immediate claims of responsibility for the latest attack.
