Bombs at mosque, restaurant in central Nigerian city kill 15

Witnesses say two bombs have exploded at a crowded mosque and an elite Muslim restaurant in Nigeria’s central city of Jos, killing at least 15 people. There was no immediate official word on the Sunday night blasts. Witnesses who requested anonymity for fear of reprisals say the explosion at Yantaya Mosque came as a leading cleric who preaches peaceful co-existence was addressing a crowd during the holy month of Ramadan.  Another bomb exploded at Shagalinku, a restaurant patronized by elite politicians. Mark Lipdo of the Christian Stefanos Foundation says at least 15 people died there.
