MAIDUGURI, Nigeria (Reuters) - Two explosions in quick succession struck the crowded main market in the northeastern Nigerian city of Maiduguri on Monday, witnesses said.

It was not immediately clear how many people were wounded or killed in the blasts just before noon in the city, which is at the center of an insurgency by Boko Haram Islamist militants.
