Many dead in twin Nigeria blasts

Many dead in twin Nigeria blasts 

Two female suicide bombers blow themselves up at a crowded market in the
northern Nigerian city of Maiduguri, killing 78 people, hospital staff say.

Suicide attacks by two female bombers at a crowded market in northern Nigeria's Maiduguri city have killed 78 people, medical officials say.
One teenage girl blew herself up first and as people gathered to help victims, the second girl detonated herself, witnesses say.
No group has said it carried out the attacks, but the militant Islamist group Boko Haram is suspected.
Its insurgency is to establish what it calls an Islamic state.
Campaign group Amnesty International says that the group killed at least 1,500 people in early 2014.
It was based in Maiduguri, the capital of Borno state, after its formation in 2002, but it has since been driven out of the city by the military and vigilante groups.
'Bomber screamed'

It now controls a large number of towns and villages in Borno, amid fears that it is preparing to launch an assault to capture Maiduguri.
