BREAKING: Teenage Suicide Bomber Attacks Yobe State, 6 Dead, Several Injured
A teenage suicide bomber killed at least six people at a bus terminal in Yobe state which is located in north-eastern Nigeria, witnesses said on Tuesday.
Almost 30 others were injured when the girl detonated explosives strapped to her body in the town of Damaturu, the capital of Yobe State, resident Haruna Ibrahim told dpa.
Last month, three people were killed and at least five injured by a suicide bomber who exploded his car at a security checkpoint in Damaturu.
No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, but Islamist terrorist group Boko Haram, which seeks to establish a state with its very strict interpretation of Islamic law, has killed thousands of people since 2009 in similar attacks.
