Female Suicide Bomber Kills 1, Inures Many In Niger

A female suicide bomber injured four people at a teachers' college in northwest Nigeria on Wednesday, NDTV reports.

Police spokesman Ibrahim Gambari said that the woman had blown herself up at the Federal College of Education in Kontagora, Niger state before reaching her target, the school library where students were revising for exams.

The blast nonetheless injured four people -- three students and a bystander.
Earlier a student at the college spoke of 10 people dead.

At the scene of the blast, student Mary Okafor said least 10 students were killed and several others injured.

"We saw bodies on the ground between the library and the female hostel," she said.

She added that she believed there had been two bombers.

"Among the bodies were two dismembered women who we believe were the bombers," she said.

"We have all been asked to vacate the school. The authorities in the town have asked all schools to close."

The attack came two days after nearly 60 people were killed in a suspected Boko Haram suicide bombing at a school in the town of Potiskum in northeast Yobe state.
