Suicide bombers attack India's Airtel in Nigeria

Mobile phone operator MTN also targetted

Two suicide car bombers attacked the offices of mobile phone operators India's Airtel  and South Africa's MTN on Saturday in Nigeria's northern city of Kano, killing themselves but no civilians, the police said.

"The one who hit the Airtel office was shot by military men before the bomb exploded at the MTN office the car rammed into the fence but no civilians were killed," Ibrahim Idris, the chief of police in Kano, told Reuters by phone.

Boko Haram has previously targeted phone companies, saying they help the security forces catch its members.
