16 dead in bombing on UN building in Nigeria

ABUJA, Nigeria

A U.N. official calls it a bomb attack.

Witnesses told The Associated Press that a sedan broke through the exit at the U.N. compound, ramming through two separate gates as guards tried to stop the vehicle.

The U.N. building, which houses about 400 employees, is in the same neighborhood as the American embassy.

No one has claimed responsibility for the attack.
