At least 44 people are reported dead following two bomb attacks on the central Nigerian city of Jos, the authorities say.

No one has claimed responsibility. However, militant group Boko Haram has attacked Jos before, even though it is not in north-east Nigeria where the Islamists normally operate.

The blasts are the latest in a series of deadly attacks in recent days which have seen more than 200 people killed.

Reports indicate that the attacks came shortly after the Ramadan fast was broken, with both sites full of people.
