Multiple deadly blasts hit Nigeria

Authorities say Islamist sect known as Boko Haram is responsible for attacks in north of country.

    The north of Nigeria has been hit by a series of bomb attacks. In one of them at least four children were killed when a device exploded near a church.

    That blast came just hours after a suicide bomber targeted a police station in the capital, Abuja, killing two people.

    Authorities said an Islamist sect known as Boko Haram was responsible for the attacks.
