Nigeria: Dozens Killed In Suicide Bomb Attack In Mosque


Dozens were killed in a suicide bomb attack this morning against a mosque in Maiduguri, in north-east Nigeria, during early morning Friday prayers, reports the online Daily Trust.

The mosque is situated in the Jidari Polo area, in the heart of the capital of Borno State. The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) provided a different toll of 7 dead and at least 17 injured.

No group has so far claimed the attack, but over the past week Maiduguri has been targeted by several attacks by the Boko Haram Islamists.


MISNA, or the Missionary International Service News Agency, provides daily news ‘from, about and for’ the 'world’s Souths', not just in the geographical sense, since December 1997.
