It might sound like the beginning of a bar joke, but it’s not. It’s quite serious, indeed!
Two women, clad in burqas- surprise, surprise, the perfect way to get through ANY checkpoint, because no one wants to be “that guy” who offends a female Muslim by groping her body for a bomb- walked into a crowded area, detonated their bombs they were hiding beneath their garb, and BOOM! 58 people dead at last count!
From the Associated Press:
MAIDUGURI, Nigeria (AP) — Two female suicide bombers blew themselves up in a northeastern Nigerian refugee camp, killing at least 58 people, health and rescue officials said Wednesday.
A third woman bomber was arrested and gave officials information about other planned bombings that helped them increase security at the camp, said an official of the Borno State Emergency Management Agency.
Some 78 people are being treated for wounds from the twin explosions that occurred Tuesday morning in a camp of some 50,000 people driven from their homes by the Boko Haram Islamic uprising, according to health workers in Maiduguri, the biggest city in northeastern Nigeria and birthplace of Boko Haram. They spoke on condition of anonymity as did rescue officials who said they were not authorized to speak to reporters.
