At least seven civilians were killed when a car ran over explosive devices planted on a highway in northeastern Nigeria, according to eyewitnesses and police sources.

NO ONE SURVIVED

A commercial car hit the improvised explosive devices (IEDs) near Burartai, a remote town in the volatile northeast Borno State late Thursday. "All seven passengers in the black car died. No one survived," Mohammad Miringa, a resident, told Anadolu Agency by phone. "The corpses of the deceased have been evacuated," said a police source who asked not to be named due to restrictions on speaking to the media.
