Bomb Blast Kills 14 at Bar in Nigeria

A bomb blast at a bar in northeastern Nigeria has killed at least 14 people watching a soccer match on television.

Sunday's attack happened in the town of Mubi in Adamawa state.

No one has claimed responsibility, but suspicion has fallen on the Islamic militant group Boko Haram. The group has killed thousands trying to set up a conservative Muslim state in northern Nigeria.

It also is still holding more than Nigerian 200 schoolgirls kidnapped seven weeks ago.
