Two teenage girls wearing suicide belts blew themselves up in a market in northern Nigeria yesterday, killing at least 40 people, The Daily Beast website reports today (November 26, 2014).
It was the latest in a string of horrific attacks in Nigeria for which Islamist militants are blamed.
Yesterday's attack took place in the Borno state capital of Maiduguri.
The first girl detonated hidden explosives, killing about three people. When a crowd gathered, the second teen blew herself up, killing dozens.
