Nigeria: 3 female suicide bombers murder 28, injure 82

(Maiduguri) Three female suicide bombers blew themselves up at the entrance to a camp for refugees in north-east Nigeria yesterday, killing 28 people and wounding 82.

The attack — the latest in a string of assaults in the troubled region — took place in the town of Mandarari, 25 kilometres from Maiduguri, the capital of Borno state.

The first woman detonated her bomb causing mass panic and in the congregated confusion that followed 2 others, placed at strategic choke points, detonated theirs, causing the worst of the death and injury toll.

The bombers believed to be from Boko Haram who are trying to force through by deadly force a Sharia state, seem not to have noticed that not only are the vast majority of people in the northern half of Nigeria are Islamic, but they are already ruled by… Sharia law.
