Many people have been killed in three explosions during Friday prayers at one of the biggest mosques in the Nigerian city of Kano.



An eyewitness says he counted about 50 bodies, but this figure has not been verified.



The Central Mosque is where the influential Muslim leader, the Emir of Kano, usually leads prayers.



The Emir recently called for people to arm themselves against Islamist militant group Boko Haram.



The group has reportedly killed more than 2,000 people this year.



The Emir, Muhammad Sanusi, is currently in Saudi Arabia.
