Nigerian girl, 13, found wearing explosives vest

Kano – Nigerian police arrested a 13-year-old girl wearing an explosives-packed vest in the northern city of Kano hours after an attack by two female suicide bombers, a security source and a witness said on Thursday.

The girl turned up at a clinic on the outskirts of Kano hours after a double bombing at a market in the city.

“The people there called the attention of security personnel who found explosives primed for a suicide attack on her,” said the security source, who requested anonymity, in an account confirmed by a nurse at the clinic.
