2 girls blow themselves up in Nigeria, killing dozens


Two girls blew themselves up Monday near a crowded mosque in northeast Nigeria’s biggest city, killing about 30 people, witnesses said.

It is the fourth suicide bombing this month in Maiduguri, which is the birthplace of the Boko Haram Islamic extremist group.

Fishmonger Idi Idrisa said one teen approached the mosque crowded with people performing afternoon prayers during the holy month of Ramadan. The second teen appeared to run away and blew up farther away, he said.
