"Gunmen fired Kalashnikov rifles in the air and others brandished machetes while storming a polling place here Tuesday, as voters in Africa's most populous nation struggled to cast ballots after the presidential election sparked riots killing at least 500 people last week. The attackers made off with the yet-to-be-voted ballots, the ballot box and the youth volunteer in charge of this village's election in Akwa Ibom state, witnesses told The Associated Press."
