At least 120 dead in Nigeria mosque suicide bombing — RT News
Suicide bombers followed up by gunmen have killed at least 120 people and wounded 270 others in a mosque, which was the place of worship of Nigeria’s top anti-Boko Haram cleric.
The bombers and gunmen attacked the Grand Mosque in Kano during Friday prayers. A rescue official provided AFP with the number of those killed and injured.
Emmanuel Ojukwu, a national police spokesman, told AFP that the suicide bombers blew themselves up in quick succession and gunmen then “opened fire on those who were trying to escape.”
