BREAKING: Six killed, over 40 injured in northeast Nigeria bomb attack



A bomb attack has claimed the lives of at least six people and injured more than 40 others in Nigeria’s northeastern state of Yobe.

A young female terrorist bomber detonated her bomb outside the main bus station in the town of Damaturu, the capital of Yobe, during the early hours of Tuesday.

Witnesses said they saw a "young girl" approaching the station and refusing to be frisked by security guards at the gate before blowing herself up.

No group or individual has claimed responsibility for the bombing, but Boko Haram Takfiri terrorists have in the past used young women to carry out similar attacks in the restive northeast of Nigeria.

Separately, witnesses and police reported a second attack about 10 minutes after the station blast, in which a bomber managed only to kill himself and slightly wound a bystander on the outskirts of the same town.
