There is still no claim of responsibility for a deadly bombing during a World Cup watching event in Nigeria. It happened Tuesday, in an area of the country where Boko Haram is very active.

Witnesses said a suicide bomber drove a tricycle taxi packed with explosives into the area. But police officials said the explosion came from a car parked and abandoned on the road in front of the site.

Police said such World Cup viewing sites were banned in Yobe state two months ago because they have become a target of Boko Haram, an armed militant group that wants to turn Nigerian into an Islamist state. CCTV’s Deji Badmus reports from Lagos.
