"A suicide attack at the Abuja bureau of a top Nigerian newspaper and a car bombing at another of its offices killed at least six people Thursday in the first such strikes against the country's media. ... Police said a suspect in Kaduna was arrested and he was suspected to be a member of Islamist group Boko Haram. A purported spokesman for the Islamist group had recently made threats against news media outlets, saying they were being used by authorities to publish stories against Boko Haram." (04/26/12)
