At least 21 people were killed, and many more injured following a bombing at a crowded shopping mall in Nigeria's capital city.
Reports indicate that this is the latest in a series of violent attacks blamed on the terrorist group Boko Haram, which Nigerian security forces have been unable to contain.
A witness who was near the site of the blast, told the BBC:
"We heard a really loud noise and the building shook, and people started screaming and running out. We saw the smoke and people covered in blood. It was just chaos."
The blast occurred midday Wednesday when the area was packed with shoppers. Witnesses claim that the explosion scattered body parts in the exits of Emab plaza.
