Two female suicide bombers struck a market in the northeast Nigerian state of Adamawa on Monday, an army official said, with a local community leader giving a toll of at least 30 killed.

The military chief in Adamawa state, Brigadier-General Victor Ezugwu, confirmed the twin suicide blasts in the town of Madagali but did not give a toll.

"The two female bombers killed at least 30 people in the twin blasts in the market," Maina Ularamu, a community leader and former chairman of Madagali local government, told AFP.
