At least 12 killed in Nigeria suicide blasts

One of two female attackers 'aged 10'

(ANSA) - Rome, July 17 - At least 12 people have died in explosions at prayers for the Muslim festival of Eid in the Nigerian town of Damaturu, the army said Friday.
    The two female suicide bombers included a 10-year-old girl, said Nigerian army spokesman Col Sani Usman.
    There were two blasts at a venue where volunteers were waiting to screen worshippers, he said.
    No group has said it carried the attack but Boko Haram has recently stepped up its campaign of violence.
