At Least Five Killed In Nigeria Suicide Attack


At least five people have been killed in a suspected suicide bomb attack outside a mosque in northeast Nigeria.

Security officials said the attack after Friday prayers on July 13 in Maiduguri appeared to target two local leaders who had condemned a recent series of attacks by the Boko Haram sect.

Maiduguri, a Boko Haram stronghold, has been a flashpoint for violence.

Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan has declared a state of emergency in some parts of the state.
