Explosion kills at least 9 in Nigeria

Posted:
An apparent car bomb exploded in Nigeria's capital and a hospital worker says at least nine people died.
   The bomb exploded near a checkpoint Thursday night, near the site of an April 14 bombing that killed at least 75 people, officials and witnesses said.
   A hospital worker said he counted at least nine bodies ferried by ambulance to Asokoro General Hospital. He spoke on condition of anonymity because he is not allowed to give information to reporters.
   Civil Defense Corps spokesman Eman Ekeh said rescuers have rushed to the scene on May Day, a public holiday in the West African nation that is hosting the World Economic Forum on Africa next week in Abuja.
   Ekeh said there were casualties, but he had no idea of how many.
