Nigerian forces in Jos dispersed protesters at the Central Mosque in Jos by firing live ammunition into the air. It will be the second protest in Jos since the US-made anti-Islam movie ignited Muslim fury in the Middle East and Africa.

Eyewitness said two people are killed in Jos, but a military spokesperson, Captain Salihu Mustapha said there were no casualties.

The protester had begun the protest march carrying placards denouncing the US and moving towards the main street on Ahmadu Bello way when soldiers began firing off.

Businesses in the area hurriedly closed, and several residents retreated to their homes.
