Fourth suicide attack in Maiduguri this month

(ANSA-AP) - Bauchi (Nigeria), June 22 - At least 30 people died Monday when two girls blew themselves up near a crowded mosque in northeast Nigeria's biggest city.
    This is the fourth suicide bombing this month in Maiduguri, the birthplace of the Boko Haram Islamic extremist insurgency. Eyewitnesses say one teen exploded as she approached the mosque crowded with people praying during the holy month of Ramadan. The second teenager appeared to run away and blew up further away, killing only herself, eyewitnesses said.
