MAIDUGURI, Nigeria (Reuters) - A suicide bomber killed 13 other people in the northeast Nigerian city of Maiduguri on Sunday, a police official said.

The evening attack, which also injured five people, struck the city's Muna Garage area, Damian Chukuw, a police commissioner, told Reuters.

The area is home to a camp for those who have fled the conflict with the Boko Haram Islamist insurgency.
