At least 32 people have been killed and 80 wounded in a blast at a fruit and vegetable market in the northeastern Nigerian city of Yola, Reuters reported Tuesday afternoon. While no one has yet claimed responsibility for the attack, the blast resembled ones conducted by the militant Islamist group Boko Haram in the past.



Boko Haram has killed thousands of people in the past six years, and suspected Boko Haram militants have reportedly carried out attacks in neighboring countries including Chad, Niger and Cameroon in recent weeks. The group has not attacked northeastern Nigeria since late last month when bombings in Yola and Maiduguri left at least 37 people dead.
