Woman in suicide blast at Nigeria barracks
« on: June 08, 2014, 04:07:48 PM »
A female suicide bomber has blown herself up outside an army barracks in Nigeria's northeastern city of Gombe, killing at least one soldier.

According to the military, soldiers stopped the woman as she tried to get into the barracks with explosives hidden under her robes.

No one has claimed responsibility for Sunday's blast.

Leaders from Gombe's neighbouring state of Borno told journalists on Sunday that they had now buried 110 bodies from attacks on nine villages early last week, the Reuters news agency reported.

"It was a great tragedy. There are still corpses lying in the bushes surrounding the communities," said Ali Ndume, a senator representing southern Borno.

"Many of our people that fled to the top of the hills during and after the attacks are still there and now stranded."

I remember seeing a 'live' execution of either a Biafran or a Nigerian soldier on the evening news as a young man...their Civil Way.

Point is they've been fighting one another for generations.
