Nigeria suffers new bomb attack
A blast at a market place in the northern Nigerian city of Maiduguri has killed four people and injured others.
An army spokesman described the explosion as a major incident, and blamed it on the Islamist group, Boko Haram.
The group has said it carried out a series of attacks that took place on Christmas Day which killed at least 37 people just outside the capital, Abuja.
