Riots kill 'hundreds' in Nigeria




Hundreds of people are reported to have been killed during religious clashes in the central Nigerian town of Jos.
A Muslim charity says it collected more than 300 bodies, after clashes broke out over disputed elections. It is not clear how many Christians have died.
There is no confirmation, but figures tend to be notoriously unreliable in Nigeria, says the BBC's Alex Last.
Police have imposed a 24-hour curfew and the army is patrolling the streets of the town of Jos.
The Nigerian Red Cross says at least 10,000 people have fled their homes. The governing party in Plateau state, the PDP, which is mostly backed by Christians, was declared to have won the state elections. The result was contested by the ANPP, which has support from Muslims.
