"Among the debris of burned homes, destroyed businesses and lives lost on one dirt road in this city on a fault line between Nigeria's two major faiths, the bright green ballot boxes stood out Thursday against the misery inflicted here. Both Christians and Muslims inked their fingers to cast their vote in gubernatorial elections held in Bauchi and Kaduna states Thursday, delayed by the postelection violence last week that killed at least 500 people across Nigeria's north."
