At least 30 people were killed in a triple suicide attack in north-east Nigeria, state emergency services officials said.

Three suicide bombers detonated explosives in Konduga, 25km from Maiduguri, the Borno state capital on Sunday village head Bulama Kalli said.

Kalli said the attackers targeted a site where villagers gathered to watch a soccer match on a large screen. More than 25 of those killed have been buried while several survivors are in hospital in Maiduguri.

No group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack.



The Boko Haram group and its Islamic State splinter group often carry out suicide bombings targeting civilians in Borno state. Attacks have claimed thousands of lives and displaced millions.
