Child kills in Nigeria - level 3
Fifteen people died here, including the 10 year-old suicide bomber. Nigerian police say the girl tore through a crowded market, detonating the bomb in Damaturu in northeastern Nigeria.
No one has claimed responsibility for the explosion which is the latest in a series of attacks bearing the hallmarks of the militant Islamist group Boko Haram.
Undetonated explosives were also recovered at the scene of the blast. A police spokesman said they recovered 5 units of explosives, adding that the suicide bombers are changing their tactics of using bags to convey their devices so they can't be easily suspected or detected.
The explosion in the centre of the Yobe state capital came six days after another suicide bomber killed three policemen at a checkpoint on the outskirts of the city. And earlier this month, at least nine people were killed in the city by a female suicide bomber as worshipers gathered to mark the Muslim holiday of Eid.
Difficult words: tear (to move very quickly), detonate (to make something explode), hallmark (an idea, method, or quality which is typical), blast (an explosion), tactic (a method), suspect (to think that something bad can happen), detect (to find), gather (to come together).
