Boko Haram extremists struck the northeast Nigerian city of Maiduguri for the first time in months Monday, attacking with rocket-propelled grenades and multiple suicide bombers, witnesses said. At least 30 people were killed and the death toll could go higher, officials said.
The military said there were multiple attacks by the Islamic extremists at four southwestern entry points to the city, including a female suicide bomber who killed one other person and injured 13 gathered outside a mosque after dawn prayers.
