Fighting erupted between warring Christian and Muslim factions near the central Nigerian city of Jos on Sunday, after Christmas Eve bombings in the region killed more than 30 people and left 74 critically injured.

 Buildings were reportedly burned down and citizens ran for cover, with injured parties covered in blood being hauled by family and friends to a nearby hospital.

 Nigeria has become religiously divided, with Islam controlling the north and Christianity the south.
