30 killed in Nigeria twin bomb explosions

Nigeria,July 17: Two bomb attacks by suspected Boko Haram militants killed over 49 people at a market in Gombe, in northeast Nigeria, on Thursday. 

Nobody claimed responsibility for the blasts, which went off around 5.30pm, but they bear the hallmarks of attacks by Boko Haram. The militant Islamists have killed thousands in a six-year insurgency in the country's northeast. 

President Muhammadu Buhari has made crushing the insurgents his top priority, but hundreds have been killed in bombings and shootings since he was inaugurated on May 29.
