August 18, 2017

Two dogs stopped a Boko Haram attack on a hospital in Maiduguri, Nigeria, according to an article on The Nation website.

Two suicide bombers tried to detonate bombs at the Moloi General Hospital.

The persistent barking by the two dogs prevented the suicide bombers from entering the hospital.

The bombers, a male and female, were attacked by the dogs, forcing them to detonate the explosives strapped to their bodies. Only the suicide bombers and the dogs were killed in the attack.
