17 March 2017

TWO people were killed and 16 others were wounded when four female teenage suicide bombers detonated their explosives in a residential area of the city of Maiduguri in Nigeria's Borno state on 15 March, Al-Jazeera reported. The attackers reportedly detonated their explosives targeting the residence of a local leader after knocking on his door. It was unclear whether the local leader was among the casualties. Although there was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack, Wilayat Gharb Afriqiyya - formerly Boko Haram - has conducted similar previous attacks.
