As Nigeria reels in the wake of last Friday’s bombings in the city of Kano, attacks began anew tonight with more reports of explosions and sporadic gunfire around police stations. Police are still finding large amounts of unexploded ordnance.
The exact details of the new attacks are not yet clear as there is a full curfew on the city; more information is unlikely until later Wednesday morning.
An unconfirmed report claims 158 people were arrested after a gunbattle between security forces and Boko Haram members.
Kano officials also say that the toll for Friday’s attacks has risen to 211. Many of the added slain were people who had never managed to reach any of the city’s hospitals after the attacks.
