13 killed in three blasts in Damaturu

Thirteen people were killed in a triple attack in the northeastern Nigerian city of Damaturu on Friday, medics said.

Two people were killed in twin explosions that rocked the city before a third moments later near a mosque that left another 11 dead, the latest attacks in the region where Boko Haram Islamists are waging an insurgency.

“For now we have 13 dead bodies brought to the hospital,” a medical source who wished to remain anonymous told AFP.
