Nigeria: Two blasts strike market and hospital in Jos

At least 46 people have been killed and many others injured by two bomb explosions in the volatile central Nigerian city of Jos, police say.

The blasts happened in a busy market near a bus terminal.

No group has said it carried out the attack. However, Jos has seen several deadly clashes between Christian and Muslim groups in recent years.

Islamist militant group Boko Haram has also carried out a spate of recent bombings.
