Twin bombs in Nigeria’s Borno state kill seven and injure 12

At least seven people died and 12 were injured when twin bomb blasts by suspected Boko Haram militants struck a wedding party in northeast Nigeria’s Borno state on Friday, locals said. The explosions, two minutes apart, hit the remote town of Tashan Alade at about 6 AM local time — hours before new president Muhammadu Buhari vowed in his inauguration speech that the “mindless, godless” militants would be defeated.
