The president of Nigeria has vowed "to leave no stone unturned" in tracking down the perpetrators of a mosque attack that killed at least 81 people.

Goodluck Jonathan urged the nation "to confront the common enemy" after the gun and bomb attack during Friday's prayers in the northern city of Kano.

Hundreds of people were injured in an attack which officials say bears the hallmarks of Boko Haram militant group.

No-one has so far said that they carried out Friday's assault.

Kano's Central Mosque, where the attack took place, is where the influential Muslim leader, the emir of Kano, usually leads prayers.

He recently called for people to arm themselves against Boko Haram, so it is possible that this attack was in response to that call.
