Witness said the explosion took place at the Farm Centre market shortly after 4:00 pm and rescuers were busy evacuating victims of the attacks.

The attacks were said to have been carried out by two female suicide bombers who were dropped off by 4 men driving an SUV, the bombs went off at the entrance of the market, while the other exploded inside the market.
