Dozens dead in Nigeria bombings in Kano

Eyewitnesses in Nigeria say they have counted as many as 80 bodies in a morgue, after a series of blasts in the northern city of Kano.

A 24-hour curfew is in place in the city, which is the second largest in Nigeria. The militant Islamist group Boko Haram has said it carried out the attack.
