MAIDUGURI, Nigeria Dec 26 A suicide bomber
attacked a cattle market on Monday in Maiduguri in northeastern
Nigeria, the city worst hit by Boko Haram's seven-year
insurgency, the police and a witness said.
Police said the bomber, who struck the Kasuwan Shanu market
in the central district of Kasuwa, was dead but did not give
details of any other casualties. A witness said a number of
people had been injured.
Nobody has claimed responsibility for the attack but it
bears the hallmarks of Boko Haram and comes days after President
Muhammadu Buhari said the jihadist group's key camp in its last
remaining enclave had fallen.
