A bomb attack on a busy shopping district in Nigeria's capital, Abuja, has killed at least 21 people and injured 52 more.

The blast, near the popular Banex plaza shopping complex in Wuse district, could be heard from miles away and sent curls of smoke into the air.

Police say a suspect has been arrested. No group has claimed responsibility.

Islamist militant group Boko Haram has bombed targets in Abuja and across northern Nigeria recently.
