A teenage suicide bomber detonated an explosive device strapped to her body in the northeastern Nigerian city of Damaturu early on Tuesday, killing five people and wounding about 30, police said.

No one claimed responsibility for the blast but Islamist militant group Boko Haram has been blamed for a series of similar attacks in the region in recent weeks.

"At about 7:40 A.M., a female suicide bomber about 14 years old denoted an explosive device at the central Damaturu bus station. Six people were killed including the suicide bomber," police spokesman Toyin Gbadegesin said.
