    Two explosions have rocked the central area of Jos the Plateau State capital of Nigeria, West Africa.

    The explosions, believed to have been caused by an improvised Explosive Device (IED), occurred around the busy Jos Main Market, between railway terminus and the temporary site of the Jos University Teaching Hospital.

    The first blast went off at about 3:10pm on Tuesday while the second erupted about 10 metres away 15 minutes later.

    iReport correspondent in Jos reports that the explosions were followed by thick smoky flame.

    Pandemonium is also reported to have ensued with cars colliding as their drivers scampered for safety.
