YOLA, Nigeria (Reuters) - Several people were feared killed on Friday by suicide bombings in the northeastern Nigerian city of Madagali, residents and army sources said.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility.

The bombings, in Adamawa state, bore the hallmark of Boko Haram, which has been waging an insurgency to set up an Islamic state in the northeast.
