Three suicide bombers kill four outside northeast Nigeria's Maiduguri

MAIDUGURI, Nigeria March 19 (Reuters) - Three suicide bombers killed four people and injured eight others in a village near the northeast Nigerian city of Maiduguri, a police spokesman said on Sunday.

The blasts, around 7 kilometres (4 miles) from the city worst hit by jihadist group Boko Haram’s eight year insurgency, occurred on Saturday around 9:00 p.m (2000 GMT), said Maiduguri police spokesman Isuku Victor.
