Deadly bombing in north Nigeria
A bomb attack in north-eastern Nigeria has killed at least 25 people, officials say.
The attack reportedly occurred in a beer garden in the town of Maiduguri. Officials say it was carried out by an Islamic sect, Boko Haram.
The group believes Muslims should withdraw from Western society.
It has claimed a number of bombings in north-eastern Nigeria, as well as an attack on police headquarters in the capital Abuja earlier this month.
