Nigeria bus station blasts 'kill 70'

Two bombs have exploded at a crowded bus station on the outskirts of the Nigerian capital, Abuja.

More than 70 people have been killed in two blasts that rocked a crowded bus station on the outskirts of Nigeria's capital, Abuja, officials say.

The blast happened as commuters were about to board buses and taxis to go to work in central Abuja.

Suspicion has fallen on the Boko Haram Islamist militant group, which has staged previous attacks in Abuja.
