France condemns deadly bombing near Nigerian capital.
"France condemns the bomb attack yesterday in the Nyanya station which is on the outskirts of Abuja," the Foreign Ministry said, noting that the bomb attack killed 16 people and wounded many more, according to provisional figures.
France sent condolences to those affected by the attack and "renewed its solidarity with the Nigerian authorities in their fight against terrorism." The government in Abuja has been locked in a long struggle with Islamist extremists from the Boko Haram group, which normally operates in the north of the country but has recently been carrying out attacks in and around the capital.
