Abuja - A Nigerian newspaper reports that a baby lost in the chaos of the bus station bomb blast in Nigeria's capital is set to be reunited with her critically wounded mother.

The Daily Trust newspaper says 10-month-old Goodness is being cared for at a hospital, where it was presumed her mother was among the 75 victims of Monday's explosion.

Then family members found her mother, Gloria Adams, in another hospital.

The newspaper says hospital officials are preparing to reunite the two on Wednesday. It quotes a doctor as saying the baby only suffered a swollen eye.

Health officials say 141 wounded victims are in 15 hospitals and clinics.

The death toll from the explosion blamed on Islamic extremists is expected to rise. - Sapa-AP
