Seven killed in explosion at auto-parts market
KADUNA | Emergency officials said at least seven people were dead after an explosion in an auto-parts market in a central Nigerian city.
A spokesman for Nigeria’s National Emergency Management Agency, Yushau Shuaib, said the dead included a 3-year-old child.
Officials said the explosion happened Wednesday morning in Kaduna, the capital of Kaduna state.
Kaduna state Police Commissioner Bala Nasarawa said investigators were looking into the cause of the blast, which occurred near cylinders of natural gas.
Kaduna, on Nigeria’s dividing line between its largely Christian south and Muslim north, was at the heart of post-election violence in April.

HARARE | The United States on Wednesday protested the increasing number of arrests of journalists and civic activists ahead of the completion of constitutional reforms and proposed elections in Zimbabwe.

Three of his staff arrested Monday remained in custody in western Zimbabwe. In a new crackdown by police, four other independent journalists have been arrested since Nov. 15.
