Suicide Bombers Kill Two In Nigeria University

At least two people, reportedly a professor and a child, have been killed, following three suicide bombings, at a university in northeastern Nigeria.

Three suicide bombers, including a child, exploded at dawn Monday at Nigeria’s northeastern University of Maiduguri, killing a university professor and another child, witnesses and police said.

One blast ripped through the mosque where professors were saying dawn prayers and at least one is among victims, police and rescue officials said.

The second explosion occurred when police patrolling the back of the university shot a 12-year-old girl strapped with a suicide vest, setting off the explosives, according to police spokesman Victor Isuku.
