Suicide Bombs Rip Through Nigerian Marketplace Killing 29

Two suicide bombers blew themselves up in the main market in Nigeria's northeastern city of Yola, killing 29 people and themselves, officials said Friday, blaming the extremist Boko Haram group.
Another 38 victims, some with serious injuries, were treated in hospitals after the Thursday night explosion, Sa'ad Bello of the National Emergency Management Agency told The Associated Press.
Hundreds of thousands of people fleeing attacks by Boko Haram, an Islamic extremist group active in northeast Nigeria, have come to Yola. The suicide bombings marked the first such attack in this city.
