Displaced Nigerians fear for safety

Without the military controlling Jos, locals fear they will once again be endangered.

    A week after ethnic and religious attacks left between 100 and 400 people dead in the central Nigerian city of Jos, residents are living under the military's control.

    A 17-hour curfew is in place and no one knows how long the army will continue to control the capital of the Plateau state.

    But residents feel that without the military’s firm grip on the city they will once again be endangered.

    Al Jazeera's Andrew Simmons reports from Jos.
