At least 40 people are believed dead after a bomb blast in northeast Nigeria.

First reports said the victims were part of a crowd at a football match in the town of Mubi although some witnesses said they were watching a televised game.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility but Boko Haram militants are active in the area.

The group has set off several bombs across north and central Nigeria in the past two months.
