NIGERIA (AP) - Police say 14 people were known to have died in the bombing of an outdoor World Cup viewing center in a northeast Nigerian city.
The suicide bomber detonated a tricycle taxi packed with explosives Tuesday night.
Police Assistant Superintendent Nathan Cheghan said Wednesday that 14 people were killed and 26 were wounded in the attack in Damaturu, capital of Yobe state.
There was no immediate claim for the blast but Boko Haram was suspected.
Boko Haram wants to enforce an Islamic state in Nigeria, Africa's biggest oil producer with a population almost equally divided between Christians and Muslims.
