Nuns Blow Selves, Others Up

Nuns in habits, Muslimas in hijabs: 6 of 1:

Two female suicide bombers were behind twin explosions which claimed casualties at the Kantin Kwari Market in northwestern Nigeria's state of Kano on Wednesday, local police said.

The young girls, wearing hijab, carried out the attack by detonating their explosive devices at the biggest and busiest textile market in the northern region of Nigeria, Africa's most populous country, state police chief Adenrele Shinaba told reporters after rescue operation had been completed.

"They came by the market and asked to be directed to a public convenience. The bombs detonated, killing them and four others. At least seven others were injured," the police chief said.
