Three blasts rocked the city of Jos in central Nigeria on Tuesday, two local journalists said.
The blasts caused casualties, but it was not immediately clear how many.
A journalist on the scene of the first explosion called it “massive.” People were screaming and running, some covered in blood. Some had to be carried away, the journalist said.
The first blast was a bomb that detonated at the Terminus market, where food and clothes are sold, the journalists said. The second blast was at the same market, and could have been a bomb or a gas canister ignited by the first bomb.
The third explosion was at Abuja market, which sells shoes, the journalists said.
When CNN tried to speak with a nurse at a local hospital by phone, she was unable to hear because of victims’ cries and screams.
