Eight people were killed today (July 17, 2017) when a female suicide bomber detonated her explosives at a mosque in northeast Nigeria, according to the AFP (Agence France-Presse) website.

The head of the Bomo state emergency management agency, Ahmed Satomi, said the blast happened at about 5:30 a.m. in the London Ciki area of Maiduguri, which has been at the epicenter of the Boko Haram Islamic terrorist group since 2009.

"She killed eight people and injured 15 others," Satomi said.

The mosque was being guarded by civilian JTF (Joint Task Force) militia during prayers, he added.
