JOS- Attacks in restive central Nigeria killed five people in a village and another died in the city of Jos, where a blast also wounded nine soccer fans, police and officials said Wednesday.
The explosion in Jos took place outside a centre as spectators were leaving after watching the European Champions League semi-final between Barcelona and Chelsea late Tuesday.
“So far we have nine people injured in the stampede that followed the blast outside the soccer viewing centre,” police spokesman Samuel Dabai told AFP, while military spokesman Captain Markus Mdahyelya said a body was found near the scene, but could not say if it was linked to the explosion.

“The gunmen went from house to house and shot their victims dead.”…
