At least 71 people were killed in two explosions that rocked a bus station in the outskirts of the capital of Abuja, Nigeria.

The police said that 130 others were injured in the explosions, which occurred when the bus station was packed with travelers.

The President of Nigeria, Goodluck Jonathan, who visited the scene, blamed the Islamic Group Boko Haram.

However, the insurgent group has not claimed responsibility for the attack.
