A suspected female suicide bomber killed at least 12 people last evening, in Maiduguri, capital of Nigeria's Borno state, three days after a multiple bomb attack in the city killed more than 50.

Yesterday, a loud blast rocked Maiduguri just after 4 p.m. and a military source at the scene said a woman had detonated her bomb at a roundabout near the Monday Market, which has been attacked numerous times before.

Maiduguri is the birthplace of radical Islamist Boko Haram insurgents who have been fighting for six years to revive a medieval Islamic caliphate in northeast Nigeria.
