Yola Bomb Blast Update: 30 Confirmed Dead, 57 Injured

Thirty people have been confirmed dead in a coordinated attack on a crowded market by two schoolgirl suicide bombers in Madagali, Adamawa state.

"The attack in Madagali was carried out by two female school children. They detonated two bombs at the same time killing 30 people and they also died," said Major Badare Akintoye, a spokesman for an army unit in the nearby town of Mubi.

He said 57 people were also hurt in the bombings in Adamawa state.

No one has claimed responsibility for the attack but it bears the hallmarks of Boko Haram militants.
