A female suicide bomber attacked a market in northeastern Nigeria, killing seven people and injuring 20 others, residents and a hospital sources say.

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.
