Johannesburg - Boko Haram female suicide bombers have killed at least 15 civilians at an aid distribution point in northeast Nigeria after detonating explosives on their bodies, according to reports on Monday afternoon.
AFP reported that the blasts occurred in the Konduga area, about 40 kilometres from the Borno state capital, Maiduguri, both of which have been repeatedly targeted by the jihadist group.
The first explosion took place Monday morning in the village of Mashalari, as an NGO delivered aid, killing 15 people and injuring 43.
A second attack shortly afterwards killed only the female suicide bomber.
An attack by three female suicide bombers on August 16 killed at least 28 people, and injured more than 80 when they detonated their explosives outside a refugee camp in Konduga.
