Blasts Hit Capital of Nigeria’s Borno State
Police and emergency officials in northeastern Nigeria are blaming a radical Muslim sect for a series of bomb blasts in Borno State.
At least five people - all of them members of the security forces - were injured when their vehicle was hit Thursday by an apparent remote-controlled bomb.
Police in the state capital of Maiduguri said they suspect the Boko Haram sect was behind that attack and several others across the city.
Boko Haram members have been targeting police and religious leaders in a string of attacks in recent months. The sect has also been blamed for raids on churches and a prison.
