Female suicide bombers in Nigeria

By on November 25, 2014

Two female suicide bombers blew themselves up killing at least ten people on Tuesday in a crowded market area of Nigeria’s northeastern city of Maiduguri,centre of a militant islamist insurgency, witnesses said.

Nigerian authorities did not immediately respond to requests for comment. There was no claim of responsibility, but suspicion is likely to fall on violent Islamist group Boko Haram.

witnesses said at least 10 were killed in the blasts. Police cordoned off the scene and sirens wailed in the aftermath.

A source at Maiduguri’s General Hospital said five bodies had already arrived from the scene.

Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan plans to ask the national assembly to extend a state of emergency in three northeastern states worst hit by the insurgency when it expires this week.
