DEBKAfile was founded by a team of journalists in June 2000 as an independent Internet Web site, providing an intelligence and security news service. October 29, 2016, 12:34 PM (IDT)
Two female suicide bombers killed at least eight people on Saturday in the northeastern Nigerian city of Maiduguri. Their attacks bore the hallmarks of the Islamist terrorist Boko Haram. In one attack, a woman blew herself up in front of the Bakasi camp for displaced persons, killing five men and wounding 11 women; another female suicide bomber detonated her explosive while trying to enter a fuel depot, killing three people.
Our unique angle on these subjects – and strong intelligence dimension – has earned DEBKAfile a global reputation and a steady readership – which skyrockets in times of crisis.
