Nigeria’s National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) says two bomb attacks on the central Nigerian city of Jos have left at least 44 people dead at a restaurant and a mosque on Sunday night. Of the 44 dead, 23 were killed at the restaurant and 21 at the mosque. No-one has claimed responsibility but militant group Boko Haram has attacked Jos before, even though it is not in north-east Nigeria where the Islamists normally operate.
There are also 47 people being treated for injuries, but emergency officials are still gathering information, so the figures may rise. The blasts are the latest in a series of deadly attacks in recent days which have seen more than 200 people killed. The attacks came shortly after the Ramadan fast was broken, with both sites full of people.
