Boko Haram Kills 15 In Borno

Nigeria 21 killled in multiple suicide bombings

The blasts occurred at fish Market (Kasuwan kifi) In Sabon Gari, konduga town at 8pm as three bombers stormed the area and detonated IEDs, killing 14 civilian mostly children and injuring 60 people.

The injured have been transferred to a hospital for treatment.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack, but the use of suicide bombers in crowded areas is a hallmark of Boko Haram, an armed group waging a violent campaign in the area since 2009.

The police commissioner of Borno state, Damian Chukwu, said at least 18 people died and 22 others were wounded in the attack Friday, according to Reuters.

Bulama Kaka, a resident who witnessed the incident, told TheCable it occurred around 7pm.

The top regulator for US financial markets is barring a Chinese-led group of investors from buying the Chicago Stock Exchange. The S.E.C. said it was also not sure it would have access to the exchange's books and records after the deal.

Boko Haram has been known to deploy young women and children as suicide bombers, in addition to sending men to attack mosques, markets and other places where crowds gather.

He said some traders were affected.

The conflict with Boko Haram has killed more than 20,000 people and forced over two million to flee their homes.

The North East Zonal Coordinator of National Emergency Management Agency, Bashir Idris Garga, confirmed the incident to Channels Television.

He added that those who lost their lives and people in critical condition have been moved to the University of Maiduguri Teaching Hospital and Maiduguri General hospital.
