Bomb Blast wounds One, Damages Police Station In Nigeria
ICC Note
Bombings have continued in northern Nigeria. This latest attack was against a police station. In the past, members of Boko Haram have targeted Christians and members of Nigeria’s security forces. The attack is yet another indication of the danger faced by targets of Boko Haram attacks. 
08/17/2012 Nigeria (AFP)-A bomb blast in the volatile central Nigerian city of Jos has injured a civilian and damaged a police station as well as nearby houses, an army spokesman said on Friday.
“The police post, three other houses and a vehicle were affected by the blast. One person by the name Alhaji Abubakar Adam was injured,” Special Task Force spokesman in the city, Captain Salisu Mustapha, said in a statement.

Plateau has seen violent clashes between Christian and Muslim ethnic groups as well as attacks blamed on Islamist militants Boko Haram. It lies in the middle belt region between the mainly Christian south and majority Muslim north.
“It is clear that the police station was the target of the attack,” Mustapha told AFP.
