Nigeria: Suicide bombers target Maiduguri city, several killed

  • Several people were feared dead after multiple bombs exploded in the north-eastern Nigerian city of Maiduguri, reports say.

    Two female suicide bombers are believed to be involved in the bombings, authorities said, but some reports indicate that the bombs attached to them did not cause casualties.

    The Boko Haram militant group has carried out several attacks in the area in recent months. A suicide bomb attack in Maiduguri, the capital of Borno state, killed dozens of civilians on September 20.
