At least 71 people are dead and 124 have been wounded when a bomb exploded in a crowded bus station in Abuja during rush hour on monday morning, officials said.

Security officials say the group Boko Haram was behind the bombing of the crowded market place in the State of Borno, northeast of Nigero. They was no claim of responsibilities.

AP reports the blast ripped a hole four feet deep (1.2 metre) in the ground of Nyanya Motor Park, some 16km (10 miles) from the city centre, and destroyed more than 30 vehicles, causing secondary explosions as their fuel tanks ignited and burned.

This blast comes a year after the last bomb near the capital targeted the Nigerian newspaper in April 2013.

Security sources quoted by Reuters say Boko Haram has killed hundreds, possibly thousands, this year in a campaign of violence that is growing in intensity.
