(elbcradio.com/Oct. 30, 2015)-The United States has condemned the “horrific and indiscriminate attacks” on civilians in Nigeria by the Islamist militant group, Boko Haram.

The attacks took place Tuesday, October 27, 2015 in the northeastern region of the country.

The October 23 and 24 bombings occurred at the newly build Jambutu Mosque in Yola, the Capital of Adamawa State, and a neighborhood mosque in Maiduguri in Borno State, as well as other locations in the city. The attacks left 61 people dead.

The U.S. State Department’s Spokesman, John Kirby, offered the United States’ deepest sympathies and condolences to the families and loved ones of the many innocent civilians killed and injured in the attacks.

Witnesses to the Yola blast said it happened as worshipers were getting ready for Friday’s afternoon prayers.

Nigerian newspapers released photos showing flames and black smoke rising from the site of the blast.
