At least 15 people were killed when two bombs exploded at a crowded mosque and an elite Muslim restaurant in the central Nigerian city of Jos, witnesses said.

The explosion at the Yantaya mosque last night came as a leading cleric who preaches peaceful co-existence was addressing a crowd during the holy month of Ramadan. The witnesses said they did not know how many worshippers died.

Another bomb exploded at Shagalinku, a restaurant patronised by elite politicians. Mark Lipdo, of the Christian Stefanos Foundation, said at least 15 people died there.

Jos has been targeted in the past by bomb blasts claimed by Boko Haram Islamic extremists that have killed hundreds of people.
