ICC NOTE: In what proved to be a continuation of last week, Boko Haram attacked two separate locations over the weekend with one being in Cameroon and the second outside the birthplace of the group in Maiduguri, Nigeria. Eight people were killed and eight others injured as a teenage suicide bomber exploded near a military checkpoint as women and children were being screened prior to entry. Overall the weekend saw at least 14 killed and 20 injured by the Islamic terror group. Boko Haram continues to target mostly Christian communities through rape, murder, and kidnapping as they wish to eliminate those faithful to Christ and anything else which is deemed western oriented. 

11/23/2015 Maiduguri, Nigeria (CNN)Eight people were killed and eight others injured Sunday in a suicide bombing in Nigeria, an army spokesman said.

The bomb detonated among people displaced by Boko Haram violence in the city of Maiduguri in northeastern Nigeria, according to Col. Sani Usman.

The victims, mostly women and children from Dikwa, were undergoing security screening at a military checkpoint.

Nigerian troops liberated Dikwa from Boko Haram ‎in July, allowing people from the town to return home, and residents from nearby villages to move to the town for military protection against deadly raids. But a lack of food and other basic necessities forced people to flee.
