On Thursday, at least two people were killed by a suicide bombing in the parking lot of police headquarters in Nigeria’s capital, Abuja. The blast also left seven people injured and damaged about 70 cars.  Authorities are blaming the attack on the radical Islamic group Boko Haram. While bomb attacks have been on the rise in the nation recently, suicide attacks are pretty uncommon.
