Kano, Nigeria (CNN)A female suicide bomber attacked a crowded market in northeastern Nigeria’s Borno state on Thursday, killing seven people and seriously injuring 20 others, residents and a hospital source said.
The bomber, wearing a hijab, detonated her suicide vest in the midst of shoppers at a weekly market in the town of Biu around 3 p.m. at the peak of business, witnesses said.
“We have evacuated eight bodies, including that of the bomber, to the hospital along with 20 people injured in the attack,” Bukar Maina, a trader at the market, said.
A nurse at the Biu General Hospital confirmed the number of dead.
No claim of responsibility was immediately made, but the Islamist militant group Boko Haram has terrorized northern Nigeria regularly since 2009, attacking police, schools, churches and civilians, as well as bombing government buildings.
The Durban University of Technology’s student representative council has called for the expulsion of all Jewish students who do not support the Palestinian cause, according to a report.
The demand was sent to the university management, according to the Daily News newspaper.
The newspaper quoted SRC secretary Mqondisi Duma as saying: “As the SRC we had a meeting and analysed international politics. We took the decision that Jewish students, especially those who do not support the Palestinian struggle, should deregister.”
The university’s vice chancellor Prof Ahmed Bawa told the newspaper the demand was “totally unacceptable”.
