"Corpses were loaded onto a truck as women covered their noses to block the smell of decay while fleeing this town in northern Nigeria Thursday, as government officials said next week's gubernatorial elections could not go ahead here because of the violence. Witnesses say hundreds were killed in the town of Zonkwa alone following Saturday's election that unleashed waves of killings in communities across Nigeria's mostly Muslim north after the Christian president won the vote."
