Suicide bombers kill at least 27 in Nigeria


Suspected Boko Haram suicide bombers killed at least 27 people and wounded 83 in north-east Nigeria on Tuesday.

A woman bomber blew herself up and killed 27 others at a market in Konduga near Maiduguri, epicentre of the conflict between government forces and the Islamist Boko Haram insurgents, according to a village head and an official from a regional militia.

Two suicide bombers also blew themselves up at the gates to a nearby refugee camp, with no others killed but many injured, an emergency services official said.
