UN unbowed in Nigeria on anniversary of deadly bombing

On Sunday, a year after the bombing of United Nations headquarters in the Nigerian capital, Abuja, the world body's resident coordinator in the country, Daouda Toure, said that "although the devastating attack took the lives of our colleagues and partners and maimed many people. ... Their deaths mobilize us more than ever before." The attack by the Islamist group Boko Haram killed 23, including 13 UN staffers, and injured more than 120 people. There have been no arrests.
