Breaking! Boko Haram Suicide Bombers Get 15 Killed In Borno

This morning,at least 15 people were killed when suicide
bombers attacked an aid distribution point in northeast Nigeria,
in the latest suspected strike by Boko Haram insurgents
against civilians.
The blasts occurred in the Konduga area, about 40 kilometres
(25 miles) from the Borno state capital, Maiduguri, both of
which have been repeatedly targeted by the jihadist group.
On August 16, at least 28 people were killed and more than
80 injured when three female suicide bombers detonated their
explosives outside a camp for displaced persons in Konduga.
A rescue worker said the first blast on Monday happened at
11:10 am (1010 GMT) in the village of Mashalari. “(It) killed
15 people and left 43 others injured,” he told AFP.
“It happened during aid distribution by
an NGO, when people had gathered to
receive donations,” he said, speaking
on condition of anonymity.
“Twelve minutes later, another bomber
struck, but luckily only she died.”
The rescue worker said both bombers were women but did not
specify which NGO was distributing aid.
Babakura Kolo, from the Civilian Joint Task Force, a militia
assisting the military with security against Boko Haram,
confirmed the rescue worker’s account.
“We have dispatched our team to the
scene,” he said.
