The Votes Are In
Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan won the oil-rich country's presidential election Monday, as severe rioting swept across the Muslim north in protest of the outcome.
The Muslim North had largely voted for former military ruler Muhammadu Buhari.
Saturday, voters chose between Jonathan, Ibrahim Shekarau, Buhari and Nuhu Ribadu for the country's next president. Though the election was mostly peaceful, it was marred by reports of irregularities and fraud—including children casting ballots and party officials helping others to press their inked fingers to paper.
