Another female suicide bomber strikes in Nigeria

Kano - A police official says a female teenager has carried out a suicide attack in Nigeria's northern city of Kano.

Kano state police commissioner Aderenle Shimanaba said the attack on Wednesday targeted graduates at a polytechnic school. He said no one claimed responsibility for the attack, the fourth carried out by a female suicide bomber in the past week in Kano.

Isa Ahmed, a security guard, said he saw six bodies after the blast. Ibrahim Ado Daneji said his brother died on Thursday after being injured in the attack.

Boko Haram militants are widely blamed, having killed thousands of people this year alone.

Two other teenage females carried out suicide bombs on Sunday, killing four others. And a woman blew herself up Monday at a petrol station killing three others.

Best would have been to give their bodies to the medical society for studying purposes rather than let them go to waste like that.

This barbaric. Where is the condemnation from all those people demanding Israel stops defending itself against people like this? Where is the outrage from all those people at the UN? I guess we'll be deafened by the silence because as long as Muslims do these things it's ok...

Tut, tut, this must be Israel's fault of course.

I think they are using the kidnapped girls. This is really sad.

Tragic for the victims and their families. When reading stories of 'suicide bombers' striking again, I always wonder what drives someone to commit such a heinous crime. Was the person a Christian? A Mormon, Hindu, Buddhist, Judaist or an Atheist? What evil cult could such people belong to?
