An explosion on a busy commercial road in the north Nigerian city of Kaduna killed several people on Wednesday, witnesses said. The blast scattered debris and dead bodies on the Alkali Road in the city, witness Muhammad Danfulani told Reuters by telephone. The bomb targeted moderate Islamic cleric, Dahiru Bauchi who had been travelling in the area, police added.  He escaped unhurt. It is unclear who was behind the blast. Militant Islamist group Boko Haram has carried out a wave of bombings and assassinations in Nigeria since it launched a brutal insurgency in 2009 to create an Islamic state. It often targets Muslim leaders who condemn its militant ideology. A trader, Yusuf Suleiman, said that he had counted 15 bodies in a police van after the explosion. Source: Reuters
