At least 64 dead in triple bombing of Nigeria mosque

Some 120 wounded in attack on Kano's Central Mosque

(ANSA) - Rome, November 28 - At least 64 people died and 126 were wounded after three bombs exploded during weekly Friday prayers at one of the biggest mosques in the Nigerian city of Kano, rescue workers and medical sources said Friday in what is the African country's largest northern city.
    Kano's Central Mosque is located near the Emir of Kano's palace and is where the influential Muslim leader, Lamido Sanusi, usually leads prayers. Sanusi has reportedly called on the faithful in the prevalently Sunni Muslim emirate to take up arms against the Boko Haram fundamentalist Islamist insurgency.
