More than 60 people were killed by a twin suicide bomb attack at a camp in northern Nigeria for people displaced by an insurgency of the Boko Haram group, a military and emergency official said on Wednesday.
The attack took place some 85 km outside Maiduguri, the capital of Borno state, centre of the seven-year insurgency, they said. It took place on Tuesday, but a breakdown in the telephone system had prevented the information being made public earlier.
