Death toll in Nigeria bombing hits 41
Kaduna - Officials at a local hospital in Nigeria say another three people have died from the injuries they suffered in an Easter suicide car bombing, raising the death toll in the attack to at least 41 people.
Officials at Barau Dikko Specialist Hospital in Kaduna said three patients who were admitted after the bombing died on Monday.
State officials previously said at least 38 people died in the explosion at a busy crossroads in Kaduna, a city on the dividing line between Nigeria's largely Christian south and Muslim north.
No one has claimed responsibility for Sunday's attack, though suspicion has fallen on a radical Islamist sect in Nigeria known as Boko Haram.
