Bomb Injures 3 in north Nigeria city Hit by attack

ICC Note 

The bomb blast took place in the Christian neighborhood of the Nigerian city of Kano. The city was a scene of major attack by radical Islamic group Boko Haram. The group is known for targeting Christians and security forces. It is fighting to introduce Islamic law in Nigeria. 

04/16/2012 Nigeria (Fox News)-Witnesses say three people were injured following a bomb attack in a north Nigeria city that was the scene of a massive assault by a radical Islamist sect in January.

The attack happened Sunday night in a Christian neighborhood of Kano, the largest city in Nigeria’s Muslim north.

The bomb apparently was hidden inside of a drinking can. A January attack by members of the Boko Haram sect saw gunmen throw similar explosives.

That January attack killed at least 185 people.

Boko Haram is waging an increasingly bloody fight against Nigeria’s weak central government in its effort to enact strict Shariah law across the multiethnic nation of more than 160 million people and free its imprisoned members.
