Several Feared Killed As Boko Haram Strikes Konduga

Three women suicide bombers blew themselves up at the entrance to a camp for displaced people in northeast Nigeria on Tuesday, killing 28 people and wounding 82, local sources said. All the bombers then detonated their explosives nearly simultaneously, he said.

The official, Lawan Kalli - who is the chief of the village, Mandarari - said that at least three suicide bombers had entered Mandarari's market around 5 p.m. posing as buyers.

The injured have been taken to a hospital in Maiduguri, about 30 kilometers (18 miles) away.

Borno State, located in Nigeria's northeast region, is a flash-point of attacks perpetrated by Boko Haram since 2009, when the sect launched its insurgency targeting churches, security facilities, schools and villages.

The Islamist group faced several reversals a year ago, losing large swathes of territory to the Nigerian military. But they have struck back with renewed zeal since June, killing at least 143 people before Tuesday's bombings and weakening the army's control. At least 37 people, including members of the team, died when rescuers from the military and vigilantes attempted to free them.
