A member of Nigeria's Islamist Boko Haram sect on Saturday claimed responsibility for a wave of attacks that killed at least 63 people in the northeast of the country the day before.
"We are responsible for the attack in Borno (state) and Damaturu," Abul Qaqa told an AFP correspondent by phone.
"We will continue attacking federal government formations until security forces stop persecuting our members and vulnerable civilians," Qaqa vowed.
The Friday bomb and gun attacks, including two suicide blasts, targeted police stations, an army base and churches in the cities of Damaturu, Maiduguri and two other small towns.
"Sixty-three people (are) confirmed dead" in Damaturu, a Red Cross official who asked not to be named said.
A lawyer who visited Damaturu's government hospital Saturday looking for a missing friend said he counted 60 bodies in the morgue, "all brought in yesterday from the attacks."
The lawyer, who asked not to be named, told AFP he found the friend, a policeman, among the corpses.
He said anxious relatives were flocking to the hospital in search of loved ones.
An AFP reporter who also visited the morgue said most of the dead appeared to be policemen.
