'Serious casualties' from blast at Nigerian voting station

A bomb blast ripped through a voting station in northeastern Nigeria Saturday evening, causing "serious casualties," a spokesman for the National Emergency Management Agency said.

It was the third such explosion in the country since Friday.

Human Rights Watch estimates that at least 85 people have been killed in political violence in the run-up to the delayed national elections, being held over three days:  Saturday, April 16 and April 26.

    Testing, testing...
    All my smarty-pants answers were censored. Probably too advertisement-like.

    You would have to come over and help me: I don't make them alone, and not often in any case.

    No, they all passed the censor slowly.
    L64, what do you teach–or was that missing punctuation moment a joke?

    My fourth-grade teacher was one of the most important influences I had. She taught us her German cultural heritage–I had no idea what I was getting–and was one of my piano teachers. She taught us to draw and use water colors–I can make my own–oh, I can't get that past the censor.
