A suicide bomber blew himself up at a crowded bus station in Biu, northeast Nigeria, on Thursday, while a second bomber was shot dead before he could detonate his explosives, witnesses told AFP.

Two men arrived the Tashar Gandu motor park on the edge of the town in Borno state, where one detonated his explosives among passengers and vendors, onlookers said.

Babagana Kyari, a civilian vigilante, said "at least 18 people, including three women, died... and several others were injured" but there was no immediate corroboration of the death toll.
