Twin suicide attacks, including by female bomber, kill 10 in Nigeria

At least 10 people have been killed in twin suicide bombing along a highway in northeast Nigeria, state police have said.

According to Borno state police chief Aderemi Opadokun, while a female suicide bomber blew herself up at a village called Malari on the main road from Bama to Konduga, killing seven and injuring 13 others, a second suicide bomber killed three people along the same road, reported The Cairo Post.

A military source said that the bombers targeted those areas along the highway which were crowded and where locals sold fruits.

The attack came just a day after at least 150 people, including men, women and children, were killed in an attack believed to have been carried out by Boko Haram militants in the state.
