One Response to Kano, Nigeria – Mass Casualty Attack Analysis
September 11th, 2013 by Andre Kearns
On Friday, March 18, 2013, a car bomb exploded in a busy luxury bus park in northeast Kano, Nigeria. The suicide attack by militant Islamist group Boko Haram killed nearly 40 people and was the most deadly attack by the group in Kano since its members went on a rampage against the city’s security forces in January 2012.
This post investigates this terrorist attack through the lens of DigitalGlobe’s FirstLook, a product that enables expert analyst assessments from two complementary intelligence capabilities: DigitalGlobe imagery intelligence and Recorded Future web intelligence. The result is a new and powerful geotemporal approach to analyzing catastrophic events.
