Nigeria's President Goodluck Jonathan has sacked his national security adviser and defence minister, amid mounting violence in the north.

Security aide Owoye Azazi will be replaced by Sambo Dasuki but it is not clear who will succeed Defence Minister Bello Mohammed.

The move comes after a spate of attacks by the radical Islamists of Boko Haram.

On Sunday, 36 people died in bomb attacks on churches in the state of Kaduna and in subsequent rioting.
