Boko Haram terrorists are believed to be responsible for the bombings at the main mosque in the city of Kano, Nigeria on Friday that killed at least 120 and wounded 270 others. Officials said the Emir of Kano, one of the nation's highest-ranking Islamic leaders was away from the city and his nearby palace when the multiple blasts went off. No group has taken responsibility for the slaughter, but officials express little doubt about Boko Haram's role. Meanwhile, a bomb exploded outside the US Embassy in the Yemeni capital, Sana'a on Thursday night, killing several guards. Al-Qa'ida took responsibility for that attack. Three weeks ago the terrorist group tried to kill American Ambassador Matthew Tueller by planting bombs but the devices were discovered before they could detonate.
