14 die in suicide attack
A WOMAN suicide bomber killed 14 people, including herself, after detonating explosives in a building housing people displaced by Boko Haram violence in north-east Nigeria.
The bomber also injured 24 others in Friday night’s attack in the town of Dikwa, said Bello Dambatta, head of the rapid response team of the Borno State Emergency Management Agency.
Boko Haram’s insurgency has claimed tens of thousands of lives since 2009. Many suspected Boko Haram attacks have targeted camps for the displaced, including July 24 suicide bombings in two state-run camps. Bloomberg
