Terrorist attacks in Nigeria condemned by UN Security Council

Security Council Chamber

Terrorist attacks in two cities in Nigeria which caused the deaths of up to 69 people have been condemned by the UN Security Council.

The radical Islamic sect, Boko Haram, reportedly claimed responsibility for the attack.

In August, Boko Haram, said it carried a suicide car-bomb attack on the United Nations office in the Nigerian capital, Abuja, in which 23 people died.

Eleven of those people were UN staff members.

In a statement issued in New York on Saturday, the 15-member Security Council said acts of terrorism were unjustifiable.
