Female suicide bomber kills 5, wounds dozens in Nigeria

A young girl suicide bomber Sunday blew herself up and five others when the explosive devices strapped to her body detonated in a market in Nigeria’s northesatern city of Potiskum, witnesses said.


Nineteen others who sustained various degrees of injury were taken to hospital after the blast, a local vigilante leader told AFP.

“So far, five people were killed with the girl while 19 others have been taken to hospital for injuries,” Buba Lawan said. Witnesses said she appeared to be as young as seven-years-old.
