It has been a harvest of death in Jos, capital of Plateau State in North-Central Nigeria, where three bomb explosions were witnessed this afternoon.

A News Express Special Correspondent in the city said that 60 corpses have been deposited at the state government-owned Plateau Hospital while four have been deposited at the teaching hospital of the privately-owned Bingham University, with 26 injured persons in the emergency section.

The number of corpses taken to Jos University Teaching Hospital (JUTH) is not yet clear.

The first blast occurred about 3pm at the second-hand shoes market between old JUTH and the railways. The bomb reportedly went off in a Siena space bus marked Plateau XB 146 BLD. It was soon followed by two other explosions in the vicinity.
