Suicide bombing, grenade attacks kill at least 39 in Nigeria
Suicide bombing and grenade attacks have killed at least 39 in Nigeria.
26 were killed and 28 injured last afternoon in a suicide bomb attack inside a mosque in Maiduguri.
Nobody has claimed responsibility for the attack, which occurred while worshipers were inside the mosque.
The attack came one day after Muhammadu Buhari was sworn in as the West African nation's president.
Earlier Saturday, the Islamist extremist group Boko Haram launched a rocket-propelled grenade attack on Maiduguri.
According to residents and military sources, the assault that damaged at least 5 homes and killed 13, began just after midnight and lasted about 3 hours.
