Bomb blasts rocks Konduga fish market ‘ killing at least 18 people’

Bomb blasts rocks Konduga fish marketThree suicide bombers have hit the town of Konduga in north-east Nigeria, killing at least 18 people.

Two of them attacked a fish market and a third struck nearby, security sources said.

Boko Haram jihadists are being blamed for the blasts, though the group has yet to say it was behind them.

The bombers struck on Friday evening in the town, which lies some 30km (18 miles) south-east of the Borno state capital, Maiduguri. Wider reports of the attack only emerged on Saturday.

Some reports speak of 19 dead – 18 civilians and a soldier. At least 50 more were injured.
