A young girl on Saturday carried out a suicide attack at a bus station in Damaturu in northeastern Nigeria killing seven people and injuring 31, witnesses and the local hospital said.
"A girl aged about 12 detonated an explosive under her clothes as she approached the station's perimeter fence," said witness Danbaba Nguru.
The head of the local Sani Abacha hospital, doctor Garba Fika, said six bodies and 32 injured had arrived there with one person dying after being admitted.
