This week Mubi was recaptured from Islamist group Boko Haram, which controls many towns in the region.

In April, the group kidnapped more than 200 schoolgirls in the town of Chibok, causing international outrage.”

USA Today is reporting that a mosque was destroyed in the explosion, 35 people died and nearly 150 people were injured.
