Suicide Bomber Kills seven in Damaturu

 A female suicide bomber has killed at least seven people at a crowded bus station in Damaturu,Yobe State.Police report says more than 30 others were wounded.
Although no groups has said it carried out the bombing but the jihadist group Boko Haram has previously launched attacks in the city. On Saturday, Boko Haram fighters tried to take over the regional capital of neighbouring Gombe state.
They were repelled by Nigerian troops backed by a fighter jet.
Marcos Danladi, police commissioner of Yobe State, said Sunday's attack took place at the Damaturu Central Motor Park.
According to reports, the female suicide bomber arrived in a vehicle and walked into a crowd outside a grocery store at the end of the terminal where she detonated her explosives. Report says that an angry mob stopped emergency workers from retrieving the remains of the bomber and instead set them on fire.
