ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: President Goodluck Jonathan on Saturday visited the scene of Thursday's bomb blast in Capital Abuja on Saturday and vowed to bring the culprits to justice. Suicide car bombers targeted the offices of influential Nigerian newspaper This Day in the capital Abuja and northern city of Kaduna on Thursday, killing at least four people in apparently coordinated strikes. This Day is based in southern Nigeria and is broadly supportive of President Goodluck Jonathan's government - the main target for Islamist insurgent group Boko Haram, which has killed hundreds of people this year in shootings and bombings. Jonathan was away attending an ECOWAS summit when the attacks occurred.
