MAIDUGURI, Nigeria (Reuters) - A loud blast was heard by a Reuters witness just after 4 p.m on Tuesday in Maiduguri, the state capital of Nigeria's Borno state.

It was not immediately possible to confirm whether it was a bomb blast. The city of about two million people was hit by several bombs on Saturday that bore the hallmarks of Islamist militant group Boko Haram.
