Three girls blow themselves up in deadly Nigeria attacks


KANO, Nigeria: Three girls staged suicide bombings in the Nigerian city of Damaturu on Friday (Saturday in Manila), killing at least 13 people as residents prepared for the Eid festival at the end of Ramadan, police said. The attacks, in a northeastern area hard hit by the Boko Haram insurgency, came just days before Nigeria’s new President Muhammadu Buhari travels to Washington for talks with US counterpart Barack Obama. The bombings came on the day the country’s new army chief was due to visit the city to meet soldiers battling Boko Haram. The Boston Globe said Tsarnaev, 21, was transferred to the penitentiary in Florence on Friday.
