BBC: Buhari At Kenya Memorial As Boko Haram Bombers Kill 13 In Chibok


The number of people killed by suicide bombers in Nigeria’s north-eastern Chibok town has risen to 13, a witness has said, the Associated Press news agency is reporting.

There were three bombers – all of them females, AP reports.

Militant Islamist group Boko Haram caused global outrage in 2014 when it abducted more than 200 schoolgirls from the town in  April 2014.

Foreign powers – including the US and China – pledged to help find them, but Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari said recently that there was no credible intelligence on the whereabouts of the girls.
