BREAKING: At Least 60 Dead in Jihadist Bombing

It seems like Boko Haram is committing a fresh atrocity on a weekly basis now in Africa. This time it was in Nigeria where they have slaughtered at least 60. Two women set off suicide bombs and killed people left and right. I’ve noticed that these dirt bag Jihadists are almost exclusively using women and children as suicide bombers rather than doing their dirty work themselves. I guess it’s easier to get them in among the innocent people such as those that were lining up for breakfast Tuesday morning. They never knew what hit them. They caught a third woman who was going to be a suicide bomber as well. She said they had more bombings planned. Just sick.

From RT:

At least 56 people were killed in northeast Nigeria on Tuesday when two female suicide bombers blew themselves up in a refugee camp, officials have revealed.

Reuters’ sources put the deathtoll at over 60 people. The tragedy at the Dikwa refugee camp was only disclosed Wednesday because of a “disrpupted telephone line”.

At least 78 more people were wounded in the twin bombing, AP reports, citing health officials.

Some 50,000 people currently live at the Dikwa camp in the Borno State. The camp is located just 85 kilometers from Maiduguri, the biggest city in the region and birthplace of Boko Haram.

Channels Television is reporting that the victims were mostly women and children. Mass burials took place on Wednesday. The area is known for Boko Haram’s activity, but no group has claimed responsibility for the attack yet. I’m positive it was them. Boko Haram, whose name is often translated as “Western education is forbidden,” has committed a number of terror attacks in Nigeria and neighboring states. One of the most outrageous occurred in April of 2014, when more than 200 girls were kidnapped from a school in the town of Chibok. Last month, Boko Haram Islamists killed 86 people, including children, in an attack on the village of Dalori, which lies just 10 kilometers from Maiduguri. They burned the children alive and watched them as they died horribly screaming. The group pledged commitment to ISIS last year and changed its name to the Islamic State’s West Africa Province (ISWAP). Along with Nigeria, three more states in the region – Chad, Niger and Cameron – are involved in military conflicts with the jihadists. The stand-off has resulted in 200,000 people dead and more than 2.5 million displaced.
