"Two states in oil-rich Nigeria hit hard by religious rioting that killed at least 500 people following the country's presidential election will hold gubernatorial races Thursday. Whether the public emerges from ruined neighborhoods to vote amid burned churches and mosques remains another question. Bauchi and Kaduna states in Nigeria's Muslim north will hold the local races after the majority of the country voted Tuesday in the polls." (04/27/11)
