BAUCHI, Nigeria (AP) - Witnesses and police say twin blasts have exploded in the northeastern Nigerian city of Maiduguri, in a crowded market where two suicide bombers killed 70 people a week ago.

One man working in the market says he saw people dripping with blood and some missing limbs today.

Police say it's too early to give a death toll.

There's no immediate claim of responsibility but people are blaming Boko Haram (BOH'-koh hah-RAHM'), the Islamic extremist group that has carried out many such attacks in a 5-year insurgency that has killed thousands.
