More Than 20 Killed in Northeastern Nigeria Bombing

Mubi, Nigeria

More than 20 people were killed Tuesday when suicide bombers set off explosives outside a mosque in the northeastern Nigerian town of Mubi.

There was no claim of responsibility, but the attack bore the hallmarks of Islamist radical group Boko Haram.

Dozens of others reportedly were injured in the midday explosions. Witnesses say one bomber detonated his explosives at the mosque, while the other struck a few minutes later in a crowd of worshipers who had fled to a nearby market.
