BAUCHI, Nigeria (AP) -- A female suicide bomber set off an explosion in northeastern Nigeria on Sunday killing 13 people and injuring 65, police said.

The bombing is the latest of a series in northeastern Nigeria by Islamic extremists who have also seized several towns and cities and have kidnapped hundreds, including more than 200 schoolgirls.
