Two bomb blasts in the north Nigerian city of Kaduna killed at least 82 people on Wednesday, officials said, in attacks that bore the hallmarks of violent Islamist group Boko Haram.

A suicide bomber targeting a moderate Muslim cleric killed at least 32 of the cleric's congregation on a busy commercial road. Shortly after, a second bomb blast killed 50 people in the crowded Kawo market, a local Red Cross worker on the scene, who declined to be named, told Reuters.

More than a year after South African teacher Pierre Korkie was kidnapped by al-Qaeda in Yemen, humanitarian organisation Gift of the Givers says he has been spotted alive for a third time in as many months.

The Bloemfontein teacher and his wife Yolande were kidnapped in May last year.

Yolande was later released in the hope that she could raise a R30 million ransom but the campaign has been unsuccessful thus far.
