Islamist terrorism in Nigeria

Nigeria Kano blast: Boko Haram blamed for six deaths

At least six people have been killed in a suicide bombing at a college in northern Nigeria's biggest city, Kano, witnesses say.
The female bomber blew herself up as students queued to check their names on a new admission list, they reported.
This is the fifth attack in Kano since Sunday, at least three of which have been carried out by female bombers.
Militant Islamist group Boko Haram has been widely blamed for the attacks.
It has waged an insurgency in Nigeria since 2009, and appears to have adopted a new tactic by increasingly using female suicide bombers, correspondents say.
The bomber was hidden in the crowd, a witness, Isyaku Adamu, told the AFP news agency.
"It was a huge crowd and people were jostling to go through the lists," Mr Adamu is quoted as saying.

This occured in the mostly Muslim north of Nigeria so one can assume those killed were mostly Muslim.
