Suicide Bombers Kill 18 People In Northeast Nigeria

Three suicide bombers killed 18 people in the northeast Nigerian city of Maiduguri, capital of the state worst hit by the Boko Haram insurgency, its police commissioner said on Saturday.


Nobody has claimed responsibility for the attack but the use of suicide bombers in crowded areas is a hallmark of the Islamist militant group, which has killed more that 20,000 people since 2009 and forced over two million to flee their homes.


Damian Chukwu, Borno state police commissioner, says the attack took place at a fish market on the outskirts of the state capital about 8pm local time on Friday and also wounded 22 other people.
