Nigeria hotel attack warning issued

US citizens in Nigeria should avoid certain hotels in the capital, Abuja, because they may be targets for Islamist militant bomb attacks, the American embassy says.

The Hilton, Nicon Luxury and Sheraton hotels were named as possible targets of the Boko Haram group.

The Nigerian Red Cross says more than 100 people died in a series of attacks on Friday, mainly in the town of Damaturu.

Jonah Fisher reports from Lagos.
