Two female suicide bombers between the ages of 17 and 20 reportedly blew themselves up this week in a camp in northeastern Nigeria designed to protect people trying to escape Boko Haram terrorists, killing at least 58 people.
Houses were torched, suicide bombers detonated devices, and militants opened fire near Nigeria's largest northeastern city.

The Nigerian cities of Yola and Kano were rocked by two bomb blasts in 24 hours, killing dozens of people and wounding more than 120 others. One of the attacks involved an 11-year-old girl, the report says.
