MAIDUGURI, Nigeria — A car bomb exploded at a military post in a commercial area in a northeastern Nigerian city today, causing pandemonium with blood-spattered bystanders running away and vehicles colliding as drivers rushed to flee.

A suicide bomber is suspected in the lunchtime blast in Maiduguri, the birthplace of the Boko Haram, an Islamic extremist network that has been terrorizing northeast Nigeria. There was no immediate casualty toll.
