Dozens dead after 3 bomb attacks in Nigeria

Three bombs have been detonated in the city of Maiduguri, Nigeria, on Tuesday killing at least 30 people. Over 80 people are thought to be injured. 

The attacks are believed to have been carried out by Boko Haram. However, no group has claimed responsibility for the attack. 

The first attack took place at a market in Maiduguri, with a female fighter detonating a device which killed herself and at least 27 others. The other two attacks, including one at a refugee camp, are also reported to have been caused by female fighters detonating explosive belts.
