Nigeria's Islamic extremists chose open-air praying grounds for suicide bombings Friday, one of the holiest days of the Muslim calendar. At least 15 people died as they prepared to celebrate Eid al-Fitr in northeastern Damaturu, said police.
Nigerians who usually turn out in their finest robes to pray on the holiday stayed home in fear in Damaturu and Gombe town, where 50 people shopping for the holiday at the main market died in two bomb blasts late Thursday night, according to the National Emergency Management Agency.
...
Nigeria's homegrown Boko Haram extremist group has used many women and girl bombers in recent weeks, raising fears the insurgents are turning some of their hundreds of captives into weapons.
...
But Nigerians are weary of the military's promises to halt the 6-year-old insurgency that has killed more than 13,000 people. Amnesty International puts the toll at 20,000 to include 8,000 people it charges have died in military detention - some shot, some of untreated wounds from torture, others just starving or asphyxiated to death in overcrowded cells.
"Our military keep making promises and the bombs keep exploding. I'm tired," one Nigerian woman wrote on Twitter.

Nigeria's homegrown Boko Haram extremist group has used many women and girl bombers in recent weeks, raising fears the insurgents are turning some of their hundreds of captives into weapons.
