Scores dead in Nigeria blasts

Social Share

Co-ordinated attacks by Islamist militants in the northern Nigerian city of Kano on Friday killed about 150 people, witnesses and reports say.
Hospitals and mortuaries are struggling to deal with the numbers of killed and injured still arriving.
A series of explosions ripped apart police buildings around the city, which is now under a 24-hour curfew.
The Boko Haram group said they carried out the attacks, which would be their bloodiest assault to date.
Police have so far confirmed only seven deaths, but eyewitnesses said bodies had been littering the streets and wagons had been deployed to collect them. (BBC)
