Two female suicide bombers killed at least 24 people and injured 23 in an attack on a mosque on the outskirts of Maiduguri, Nigeria, early this morning.
Abba Aji, coordinator for the civilian self-defense vigilante group, said one bomber exploded her device inside the mosque in the town of Umarari as worshippers said their morning prayers. The second bomber waited outside and detonated as people tried to escape. Rescuers discovered the bodies of the bombers and other injured people as they dug through the debris.
