JOS, Nigeria - An explosion shook an outdoor bar in the central Nigerian town of Jos on Sunday, a military spokesman said, the latest unrest in a region where religious clashes have killed over 70 people in recent weeks.

A popular open air venue, known as West of Mines, was cordoned off following the blast.

A spokesman for the military Special Task Force meant to keep order in Plateau State, of which Jos is the capital, said the explosion was a continuation of a cycle of violence between Christian and Muslim gangs that flared up last month.

He did not say what caused the explosion or if there were casualties.
