TWO PEOPLE KILLED IN SUICIDE BOMB ATTACK IN NORTHEAST NIGERIA

At least two people were killed Friday in a triple suicide attack in the city of Maiduguri in northeastern Nigeria, police told EFE.

The first explosion occurred at dawn when two suicide bombers detonated their explosives near security forces, while the second and third explosions took place four hours later, simultaneously at the main access to the city and at the bus station, killing two civilians.

The two civilians killed were both members of a surveillance patrol.

The four suspected suicide bombers who detonated the explosives in the three attacks were also killed.

Maiduguri, the capital of the state of Borno, is one of the most affected cities by the insurgency of the Boko Haram militant group, who on Oct. 29 killed nine people and injured more than 20.
