Hardly 48 hours after religious violence flared in Nigeria's central city of Jos, violence erupted again last night and there are reports of more trouble today.

The city has now been placed under a 24 hour curfew after rioters burned homes.

An estimated 20 people have been killed in the flare-up which started on Sunday.

There were religious and ethnic riots in 2008 in Jos, when at least 200 people were killed.

Robin Waudo represents the International Committee of the Red Cross in the region, he's been speaking to his colleagues in Jos who have told him that the violence appears to be spreading.
