An explosion ripped through a crowd of soccer fans watching a European Union soccer game at an outdoor venue in Jos, Nigeria, Saturday. Three people were killed, including a suicide bomber, according to the Associated Press.
The AP called the bombing “bungled,” citing a senior Nigerian police official who claimed a suicide bomber dropped a bag of explosives in the outdoor venue.
Also on Saturday, suspected Boko Haram gunmen killed 28 people and burned houses to the group as they tore through three different villages in Northern Nigeria. This is “a pattern of violence that has become almost a daily occurrence,” according to Reuters.
The attack on the soccer match came just days after two Boko Haram car bombs exploded in a busy marketplace, killing 130 people.
No one has taken responsibility for the attack on the soccer game. However, Boko Haram has been wreaking havoc in Nigeria for the past month with bombings and the kidnapping of the 276 Nigerian school girls.
Last week, French President Francois Hollande led a summit with African leaders in Paris to discuss the violence. According to the BBC, Cameroon's President Paul Biya said, "We are here to declare war on Boko Haram."
