Bomb Blast: Two Female Suicide Bombers Detonate themselves Todays killing over 30 people (photos)

Two female suicide bombers today blew themselves up in a crowded market in Maiduguri state, killing at least 30 people. The story according to the Borno state coordinator of the Civilian Joint Task Force Abba Aji Kalli, the two teenage girls were dressed in full hijab entered a crowded market in Maiduguri state and blew themselves, killing at least 30 people in the process. The first female suicide bomber set off her explosives and killed about three women, said Kalli. When others gathered around the scene, the second bomber screamed and blew herself up, killing about 30, he said.

"I am right here at the scene and I have before me 11 corpses ... many have been taken away by relatives, while others are taken to the state specialists' hospital," said Kalli. Soldiers and police officers cordoned off the area while rescue workers helped survivors to the hospital. Nigeria's Islamic extremist rebel group, Boko Haram, are suspects of the suicide blasts, as they have carried out many similar violent acts in northeastern Nigeria. Today's blast is the first in Maiduguri since July 2 when 56 people were killed in the same market area when a car bomb hit a group of traders and shoppers. The Nigeria police are still to issue a statement on today's blasts. Join me on twitter@ugob24 instagram/princeEolis
