At least three women suicide bombers blew themselves up on the outskirts of Maiduguri, Nigeria, killing at least four people and themselves.
The explosions at dawn Friday were carried just hours after two suicide attacks inside a mosque also in Maiduguri, the capital of northeastern Borno state killed 37 people, according to a VOA reporter at the scene.
Survivor Sherif Amadu told VOA from his hospital bed that the two bombs exploded at an interval of a few minutes. The first was inside the mosque and the second outside. Amadu was one of dozens wounded in the attack.
