"A man with alleged links to al-Qaeda is suspected of being behind the bombing of the UN headquarters in Abuja, Nigerian officials say. A secret police statement said the man belonged to Islamist group Boko Haram and had recently returned from Somalia. It said two other Boko Haram suspects had been arrested on 21 August, five days before the bomb, following a warning of attacks in the capital. Friday's suicide car bombing killed 23 people and wounded more than 80." (08/31/11)
