    Twin blasts shook the office of This Day, a newspaper in Abuja, Nigeria, killing at least three people. The newspaper is supportive of President Goodluck Jonathan’s government, a main target for the Islamist guerrilla group Boko Haram. Witnesses say a suicide bomber ran into the building with a Jeep. No one has claimed responsibility for the attack, but Boko Haram has been waging an insurgency against Jonathan’s government for two years.
