Suicide Bomber Kills at least 10 in Nigeria Mosque

MAIDUGURI, Nigeria A suicide bomb attack that targeted a mosque in a restive region of Nigeria has left at least 10 people dead and 20 others wounded, local media reports said on Monday.

It is thought that the attack was carried out by a woman, who blew herself up in a mosque in the city of Maiduguri, early on Monday.

This is the fifth terrorist attack committed by suicide bombers in less than a week in the same city, a permanent target for the Boko Haram terror group.

Last Wednesday, 19 people were killed in four near-simultaneous attacks carried out by women, apparently members of the violent group.

The Nigerian army has in recent months succeeded in recovering much of the territory conquered by Boko Haram in the north-east of the country, where radicals aspire to establish a state governed by Islamic law.

Weakened by military advances, it has increasingly resorted to suicide bombings against civilians.

Since 2009, Boko Haram has killed more than 20,000 people and forced more than two million people to leave their homes in the region, according to figures from international humanitarian organizations.
