“The two female bombers killed at least 30 people in the twin blasts in the market,” Maina Ularamu, a community leader and former chairman of Madagali local government, told AFP.

 

Between Sunday and Monday morning the militants launched suicide and gun attacks on the key northeast city of Maiduguri in Borno state, killing 22 people and injuring scores of others.
