Two Nigerian politicians have died during an attack on a funeral for victims of communal violence that led to at least 37 deaths on Saturday.

The military said the funeral assault and Saturday's attacks on Christian villages near Jos in Plateau state were probably carried out by the same men.

Muslim herdsmen from the Fulani ethnic group were blamed for the violence, but they denied any wrongdoing.

The state governor has now imposed a curfew.
