Nigeria's Kano rocked by explosions
Multiple explosions have rocked Kano, the biggest city in northern Nigeria.
The BBC's Yusuf Yakasai in the city says there is pandemonium with people running all over the place.
One of the blasts is believed to be at the police headquarters and an AP reporter says a large plume of smoke can be seen over the city.
The situation and extent of the damage is not yet clear. Islamist militants have been behind a recent campaign of violence in the mainly Muslim north.
A journalist for the AFP news agency reports hearing what sounded like about 20 explosions coming from two neighbourhoods in the city.
The Islamist Boko Haram group, whose name means "Western education is forbidden", wants to establish Sharia (Islamic law) in Nigeria and started to stage drive-by shootings in 2010 on government targets in its base in the north-eastern city of Maiduguri.
It has stepped up its attacks in 2011, attacking the headquarters of the police and the UN in the capital, Abuja.
In recent weeks, southerners, who are mostly Christians or animists, living in the north have been the targets of deadly attacks.
