Teen suicide bomber kills at least 50 in Nigeria


At least 50 people have been killed in a suicide bombing on a mosque in northeast Nigeria, according to police.

Police say the young bomber was mingling with worshippers in the town of Mubi when he detonated his explosives – an act described by President Muhammadu Buhari as a “very cruel and dastardly suicide bombing attack”.

He tweeted: “My condolences to the families of the victims, and the government and people of Adamawa State. May the souls of the dead rest in peace.”
