3 Female Suicide Bombers Die in Failed Attacks in Nigeria

BAUCHI, Nigeria — Three women wearing explosive vests blew up near Maiduguri in an apparent failed suicide bombing attack against Nigeria's beleaguered northeastern city, police said Thursday.

Dozens of people died in suicide bombings in Maiduguri last week, all blamed on the extremist Boko Haram group, which regularly attacks the city as part of its six year battle to impose Islamic law in the north.

Despite the attacks, officials announced this week that Maiduguri International Airport will soon reopen. It has been closed since a December 2013 attack on a nearby air base.

Those traveling to the far northeast have had to use dangerous roads prone to attack by the Islamic extremists.

A police bomb expert investigating Tuesday's blasts said the women's bodies were cut in half by the explosions, which took place near the highway leading to the city. He spoke on condition of anonymity because he is not supposed to give information to reporters.

The expert said most bombs strapped to girls and women are triggered by remote devices, which they have no control over.

Boko Haram has kidnapped hundreds of girls in the course of their campaign.

Police commissioner John Opadokun confirmed that the three women bombers died on a mission to attack the city.

The bomb expert said three other women died last week when their explosive vests detonated near the Maimalari Barracks, on the outskirts of Maiduguri.

Eight soldiers were killed on June 4 when a suicide car bomb hit a checkpoint outside the same barracks.

Buhari was meeting Thursday in Abuja with leaders of neighboring countries about strengthening a multinational force fighting Boko Haram.

Only Cameroon's President Paul Biya was absent, lending strength to local reports of bad blood between him and Buhari. Biya failed to attend Buhari's May 29 inauguration and Buhari visited Niger and Chad the following week but not Cameroon.

Yet another old jimmie d thread. 8)

Why have six womens attempts failed? Maybe they couldn't go through with it?
I believe (no evidence....) that these girls / women are forced (or at the very least coerced / brainwashed) into doing it.
At the end of the day, islam is oppressive towards women, so go figure people.

deuce - According to the article: "The expert said most bombs strapped to girls and women are triggered by remote devices, which they have no control over."

Yes - read that. I think maybe as they bottle out, the remote holder 'aborts' the mission.

Seven injured trying to save man from possible suicide by chemical gas

By Shannon McMahon
Boston.com Staff | June 11, 2015 | 2:22 PM


A man has died in a possible suicide involving a chemical gas, which injured seven responders trying to save the man, Lowell police said today in a statement.

“Early indications are the death may be a suicide involving a male who has been the subject of domestic issues,” Lowell Police said. Captain Timothy Crowley, a spokesman for the department, said a state fire marshal and hazardous material personnel are at the scene on Rock Street and will soon determine what the gas was.

“The smell was pretty strong,” Crowley said of the scene. “Officers were hit by it down the block.”

Crowley was not at the scene and did not know what the gas smelled like. Four officers, a paramedic, and two EMTs were among 11 people hospitalized after the incident. Four of the building’s residents sent for evaluation are not initially believed to be injured.

According to The Associated Press, the man was upset about an ending relationship. The deadly chemicals have been contained, and police said the public is not at risk.

Of all the documents the ODNI released from Osama bin Laden's compound, my favorite was the application to join Al Qaeda:

Osama bin Laden wrote:
Do you wish to execute a suicide operation?.....................

What objectives would you would like to accomplish on your jihad
path?...........................................................

Who should we contact in case you became a martyr?..............
- Address:......................................................

Praise Allah, Lord of all worlds

At least they didn't ask if you have any experience as a suicide bomber...

my mini-jambox just got it wrong for the 2nd time, had one of these babies for a few years with a sony bluetooth walkman, amazing sonics

the heavy duty textured rubber bottom layer is kinda grippy so it tends to micro-bounce, traveling approx. 6 inches in 20 minutes or so & instinctively head toward the edge of the table or countertop ... survived two leaps onto a wood floor from 4 feet with some very minor denting; gotta keep an eye on it
