Another bomb blast this night rocked the city of Jos, capital of Plateau State in Nigeria's Middle Belt. It was the third bomb explosion in the formerly quiescent city in less than a week.
Four days ago, two major bombs exploded 30 minutes apart, killing over 200 people at the city's crowded Terminus market.
Kim married Kanye today in an intimate (but not so secret!) ceremony which was attended by the couple's nearest and dearest.
E! News has learned that Rick Wilkinson Jr. officiated the ceremony, which was nothing less than spectacular.
During the wedding, the couple, along with their guests, enjoyed a magical performance by Andrea Bocelli. The famed Italian tenor serenaded Kim and Kanye with several songs, including "Con te Partiro."
Kim wore a Givenchy Haute Couture wedding gown, Kanye West wore a custom Givenchy tuxedo & North wore a custom Givenchy Haute Couture dress
Guests in attendance included Kris Jenner, Bruce Jenner—who walked Kim down the aisle—Khloé Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick, Kendall Jenner,Kylie Jenner, Jonathan Cheban, Simon Huck, Rachel Roy, LaLa Anthony, Brittny Gastineau, Jaden Smith, Ray Romulus,who wore Vivianne Westwood, stylist Monica Rose, Robin Antin and the couple's adorable 11-month-old daughter, North West.
Kim's bridal party consisted soley of sisters Kourtney, Khloe, Kris, Kylie, Kendall, who all undoubtedly looked stunning their bridesmaids dresses.
White roses were delivered to the Forte today as part of the stunning floral arrangements, and the catering was provided by Galateo Ricevimenti. Guests dined on traditional Tuscan cuisine before they enjoyed an impressive 7-tier cake, which was crafted by Galeto.
Security was on high alert today at the 16th-century-era fortress, where attendees were required to hand over their cell phones prior to the I-dos.
The artwork was provided by Vanessa Beecroft Art Installation, while event company Jaulin Decorations was also seen at the Forte, which was adorned with elements of a "strong Tuscan influence" that were "reminiscent of what happened in Florentine art from the 13th century onward," according to a source.
Prior to the ceremony, two white dress bags, which seemingly contained Kim's wedding dress wear, were sent via private jet from Paris. Kim later got dressed at Forte di Belvedere and while we have yet to see her gown, we have no doubts that bride looked absolutely stunning!
Even before guests stepped foot on the stunning Forte, the excitement had already begun.
At about 2:40 p.m. Florence time, Kris, Kendall and another man dressed in a tuxedo were part of a larger group waiting outside a villa on the outskirts of Florence before they were transported to the wedding destination.
"I saw Kris and Kendall," a second source tells us. "They seemed expectant, upbeat and enthusiastic. They were standing outside waiting to leave and looking at a stunning panoramic view of Florence. They were happy and excited and you can tell they couldn't wait to go."
And for good reason—congrats to the happy couple!

Eyewitness said the explosions shook the entire area causing major panic in the area.
The bombs were primed to inflict maximum casualties as they exploded few minutes apart.
Over 200 people were killed, up from the official 72 dead released earlier by government sources, as the two apparent car bombings had exploded 32 minutes apart.
The first vehicle to explode was a Peugeot J5 van, with the registration number XG 148 BLD. The second blast was carried out with a Toyota van, with a Gombe state license plate number.
An eyewitness told SaharaReporters that the second car, a Toyota Sienna van, had been abandoned since 6 AM Tuesday morning.
At least five residents had informed police officials, suspicious of the mysteriously van parked in their area, but no police arrived at the scene, and nothing was done until the car exploded some hours afterwards. Sources tell SaharaReporters the car “exploded,” after a beeping sound was heard from curious local residents.

Gen. Muhammadu Buhari distances himself from a Scammer in EFCC custody who claims to be his adopted son.
The suspect, Mohammed Buhari, was arrested over a transaction that has the trappings of voodoo investment scheme. He allegedly obtained N20 million from one Mrs Florence Nwokocha, purportedly to invest in a lucrative oil and gas business with promises of mouth watery returns to the investor. Buhari was allegedly introduced to the lady by his account officer at Ecobank Plc and he agreed to pay Nwokocha, 30 percent annual interest on the sum.
But once the money was transferred, Buhari cleaned out the account but never paid any interest to the woman.
sources at the EFCC informs that the suspect claims he ran into trouble after he lost the bank guarantee which he secured from another new generation bank. The bank, he claims, voided the guarantee on the ground that the branch of the bank that processed it was not competent to do so.
Buhari is still in the custody of the EFCC as investigations in the case continue.
A statement issued by the General through Com Jasper Azuatalam, Chairman of the "Buhari Vanguard" stated that the tenuous link between the former head of state and the scammer in EFCC detention was aimed at smearing the general.
Read Full Disclaimer :
It is regrettable to note that after several unsuccessful attempts to smear the hard earned respect, popularity, dignity, and enviable image of Muhammadu Buhari, mischief makers have resorted to a laughable tactic of linking Muhammadu Buhari to a crime just because someone who has been alleged to have committed a crime somewhere bears the name "Buhari".
Muhammadu Buhari wishes to state categorically that he does not have any adopted son called "Mohammed Buhari" and had no need to adopt a son at any time having been blessed with choice children, both male and females. Muhammadu Buhari and his family do not know the said "Mohammed Buhari" who is alleged to be involved in a #20M scam and is being held by EFCC.
Muhammadu Buhari is blessed with very descent and disciplined children who obviously took after their father. His children have no single record of stealing and an inordinate behavior anywhere in the world. They do not seek attention, but have proven the stuff their father is made of any time their character is put to test.
However, this is understandable, since the entire attempts by mischief makers to discredit Muhammadu Buhari as an individual has failed. We frown at these poorly articulated gimmicks to indirectly link Muhammadu Buhari and his family to a crime allegedly committed by someone unknown to him and his family just for the fact that the said suspect bears the name "Mohammed Buhari".
