A powerful bomb blast has ripped through a crowded bus station on the outskirts of Nigeria's capital, Abuja, killing at least 71 people.

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

As Will Ross reports, the station was packed with rush hour commuters at the time the bomb was detonated.
