Nigeria on Wednesday said it had arrested a 10-year-old girl with explosives strapped to her body in northern Katsina state, as neighbouring Kano was hit by a female suicide bomber for the fourth time in a week.
"Security forces on Tuesday July 29... arrested three suspects believed to be members of Boko Haram," including a "10-year-old" girl, government spokesman Mike Omeri said in a statement.
The "10-year-old...was discovered to have been strapped with an explosive belt," he said.
