Female suicide bomber kills 10, injures 32 in Yobe attack


A Female suicide bomber blew herself up at a crowded bus station in the northeast Nigerian city of Damaturu on Sunday, killing 10 people and wounding 30, police said, in a region that is frequently attacked by Islamist militants.

Witness Adamu Muhammad said he heard a loud blast and the people at the Damaturu's central motor park "descended into panic."

No one claimed responsibility for the attack, which bore the hallmarks of Islamist insurgent group Boko Haram, whose use of female suicide bombers has been an emerging trend over the past year.

A police spokesman for Yobe state, of which Damaturu is the capital, put the death toll at 10, with 30 wounded, some seriously.
