THE HINDU, 21st NOVEMBER, 2017- A teenage suicide bomber detonated himself, as worshippers gathered for morning prayers at a mosque in northeastern Nigeria, killing at least 50 people, police said on November 21, in one of the region’s deadliest attacks in years.


Police spokesman Othman Abubakar told The Associated Press they were “still trying to ascertain the number of injured because they are in various hospitals.” While there was no immediate claim of responsibility for the bombing in Mubi town in the northeastern Adamawa State, the suspicion immediately fell on the Boko Haram extremist group.


The group is based in neighbouring Borno state and has been blamed for scores of similar attacks over the years.
