People look at damaged vehicles, at the scene of a car bomb explosion, at the central market, in Maiduguri, Nigeria on Tuesday, July 1, 2014. A car bomb exploded in a market in Nigeria’s northeastern city of Maiduguri on Tuesday morning, and dozens of people are feared dead, witnesses said.

MAIDUGURI, Nigeria — A car bomb exploded Tuesday in a market in Maiduguri, the northeast Nigerian city that is the birthplace of Boko Haram Islamic extremists, reducing stalls, goods and vehicles to piles of trash. Dozens of people are feared dead, witnesses said.

They blamed Boko Haram extremists who are accused of a series of recent bomb attacks in the West African nation.

Tuesday’s explosives were hidden under a load of charcoal in a vehicle, according to witnesses who spoke on condition of anonymity for fear of reprisals.
