Though no group(s) has claimed responsibility, the population has accused suspected separatist fighters for killing their own.

"Those that died are their brothers and sisters. Why attack a place where unarmed civilians have gathered to catch some fun, why kill your own? There is no justification for what they have done. This is disheartening," 

laments a nurse who attended to some of the victims.
