Market bomb blast hits Nigeria

At least ten people were killed and 20 injured in the explosion of a bomb at a military base in northern Nigeria.

The explosion occurred in a market inside the barracks in the northern city of Bauchi.

The attack comes just hours after the inauguration of the new Nigerian president, Goodluck Jonathan.

It remains unclear who is responsible for the attack.

Hundreds of people were killed last month in riots in Nigeria, after Jonathan was declared winner of presidential elections in the country.
