Nigeria defense group: At least 100 killed in Sunday blasts

Maiduguri - Members of a civilian defense group say more than 100 people were killed in coordinated bombings by Islamic extremists in northeastern Nigeria on Sunday.

Members of the civilian defense group said about 80 people died in four blasts in Maiduguri, the capital of the northeastern Borno state.

An official from Maryam Tijjani General Hospital in Maiduguri on Tuesday said that 28 bodies were brought to the morgue Monday night from a suicide attack at Monguno market, 134 kilometers (83 miles) from Maiduguri. The officials insisted on anonymity for fear of government reprisals.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attacks, but they are believed to be by the Islamic extremist group Boko Haram, which frequently uses bombings in its 6-year-old insurgency blamed for the deaths of 20,000 people.
