Twin blasts kill dozens in northern Nigeria 

Nigeria

July 23, Abuja: At least 29 people have been killed in twin bomb explosions that ripped through two bus stations in the northern city of Gombe, Nigeria, official said.

Earlier in the day, suicide bombers killed at least 11 people in the neighbouring Cameroon.

At least 49 people were killed in blasts at a market in Gombe last week in an attack blamed on Boko Haram militants. The Islamist group, which often targets northern Nigeria, has sped up attacks since President Muhammudu Buhari took office in May.

No group has come forward to take responsibility of Wednesday’s attacks although Boko Haram had previously targeted bus stations in the city. It is feared that the Gombe death toll will rise with reports of dozens of people injured.
