Suicide car bomb kills five policemen in northeast Nigeria
Suspected Islamists drove a car packed with explosives into a police patrol in the northeast city of Maiduguri on Tuesday, killing five policemen, a police source and a witness said. A police sergeant, who declined to be named because he was not authorized to speak, said the bombers crashed a Volkswagen Golf into the parked patrol vehicle and detonated the explosives by the Dalori Quarters, an estate for civil servants on the outskirts of the city. He said he saw five charred bodies of policeman in their vehicle afterward, and two bodies in the bombers' car The police spokesman for Borno state, of which Maiduguri is the capital and the birthplace of the insurgency, did not respond to a request for comment. Boko Haram, an al Qaeda-linked group fighting to reinstate a medieval Islamic caliphate in northern Nigeria, has sometimes used suicide bombings as a tactic.
