ABUJA, Aug 26 (Reuters) - An explosion hit the U.N. building
in the Nigerian capital Abuja on Friday, city police said, and
the United Nations said the blast was caused by a bomb.
"I can confirm there was an explosion at the U.N. building,"
a police spokesman in Abuja said.
"We have deployed our policemen and anti-bomb squad. We
can't establish how many casualties (there are)." Witnesses said
they saw ambulances carrying casualties from the site.
