Three bomb blasts in Nigeria kill at least 13
At least 13 people have been killed in three explosions in the northeast Nigerian town of Damaturu. The blasts came as the country’s Muslim population marked the end of Ramadan fasting with Eid-al-Fitr celebrations.
The bombings, which were carried out around 8 a.m. local time (0700 UTC/GMT) on Friday morning, were close to an Eid prayer ground. Just hours earlier, at least 34 people were killed in another explosion in the nearby city of Gombe.
“There are now 13 dead and several injured,” volunteer safety assistant Ahmad Adamu told AFP news agency following Friday’s third attack.
