Nigeria: Triple suicide attack on people watching football kills 30

(Konduga)  One of the main characters in the Sci Fi comic 2000AD is Judge Dredd, a Mega City ONE policeman. One of the villains that Dredd keeps on bumping into is Judge Death, a being from another dimension who along with his buddies (Judge Fire, Judge Fear and Judge Mortis) having decided that only the living commit crimes feel it is their duty to eradicate all life.

I get the impression that jihadists on Planet Earth subscribe to the very same mind-set, who when they aren’t banning anything which they find offensive, have no problem killing off anybody actually having a good time. Which is why last night in a village near the town of Konduga, situated in Borno state, 3 suicide bombers walked into a hall where people were watching football on a communal TV and blew themselves up killing at least 30 people,  and injuring another 42. There was a fourth bomber but her explosive vest failed to detonate and she was arrested.
