BAUCHI, Nigeria (Reuters) - A suicide bomber at a bus station in northeast Nigeria's Borno state killed at least 17 people on Thursday, a military source and an allied local vigilante said.

A second bomber tried to detonate his explosives in the same bus station in the town of Biu, but was stopped by the crowd and beaten to death, vigilante Ibrahim Jaton said.
