At least 13 killed in bombing of Nigeria World Cup viewing venue

This happened where fans had gathered to watch a World Cup soccer match.

A Reuters reporter at the local General Sani Abacha Specialist Hospital on Wednesday counted 13 people dead - including small children - and at least 20 injured.

Some of the injured eyewitnesses told Reuters it was the work of a suicide bomber, while others said an attacker dropped a device in front of the venue and ran off.
