Abandoned Bombs Explode, Killing Scores In Monguno

A series of explosions in the northern-eastern Nigerian town of Monguno has killed an estimated 20 people.

A witness told the AP news agency they were caused by a sack of home-made bombs found at an old Boko Haram camp.

“People had gathered to inspect the devices on Tuesday evening when they detonated”, he said.

Despite a successful military crackdown on the Islamist militants this year, there have been continued suicide attacks blamed on the militants.
