Nigerians claim religious massacre

Bloodshed from religious and ethnic clashes may be worse than feared, Al Jazeera learns.

    Hundreds of people have died in violence between Muslims and Christians in Northern Nigeria.

    The clashes began six days ago in the city of Jos, but later spread to the countryside.

    Al Jazeera has obtained evidence that suggests the bloodshed from ethnic and religious violence could be greater than feared.

    Our news team filmed bodies dumped in wells and saw the corpses of children.

    Al Jazeera's Andrew Simmons travelled to the village of Kuru Jantar, just outside of Jos, where locals told him about what they are calling a massacre.
