At least 150 bodies have been recovered from a well in the flash-point northern Nigerian city of Jos where Muslim-Christian communal violence in the last few days has left nearly 400 dead.

The bodies were recovered from wells by Muslim volunteers who searched among destroyed buildings in the surrounding villages.

The government has strengthened security to protect the survivors of the four-day religious violence that left not less than 400 dead. 18,000 residents were displaced, according to the Red Cross.
