Curfew in Kano after dozens die in Nigeria attacks

Hospitals in northern Nigeria are struggling to cope with those killed and injured in a series of attacks by radical Islamists.

More than 150 people are thought to have died and many others were injured in the city of Kano.

The group, Boko Haram, says it carried out the bombings and shootings on Friday.

A curfew is now in place in the city, as Mark Lobel reports.
