Nigeria has imposed a 24-hour curfew in the northern Kaduna state following increasing unrest between Muslims and Christians.
Three churches were targeted by suicide blasts reportedly carried out by the armed group Boko Haram last Sunday, which led to reprisal attacks on Muslims by Christian youth.
The scale of attacks by Boko Haram forced Goodluck Jonathan, Nigeria's president, to sack his national security adviser and minister of defence on Friday.
Despite those moves, many people across Kaduna feel the root causes of the problem are not being addressed.
