KANO: Suicide bombers attacked two mosques in northeast Nigeria´s Yobe state late Tuesday killing at least six people and injuring several others, witnesses told AFP blaming the Boko Haram .
The first explosion rocked an open air mosque in the Dogo Tebo area of the town of Potiskum around 7:55 pm (1855 GMT) leaving four people dead.
The second blast five minutes later at a mosque within the compound of the chief imam in the town´s Anguwar Bolawa area killed at least two worshippers.
“A suicide bomber we believe was from Boko Haram blew himself up at the open air mosque,” witness Balarabe Dahiru said.
