In Nigeria at least 71 people were killed in a bomb blast at a bus station outside the capital Abuja. More than 100 people were injured. There's been no claim of responsibility - but the government is blaming the militant Islamist group Boko Haram.
Boko Haram has released 101 of the 110 schoolgirls that the Islamist militant group abducted in Nigeria last month. The return of the girls came with a sinister warning for the girls' parents.
A fifth parcel bombing injured one person at a FedEx distribution center outside San Antonio, Texas. Officials believe the attacks are the work of a serial bomber.
Nigeria's military has said it rescued scores of girls who went missing after a militant attack on a school earlier this week. Their abduction was similar to the case of the 276 Chibok girls, who were taken in 2014.
The freed suspects will undergo rehabilitation before reuniting with their families. The trials are part of Nigeria's biggest legal probe into the militant Islamist insurgency that has plagued its northeastern region.
