Main opposition All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate Mohammadu Buhari pictured after casting his vote at a polling station in Daura in Katsina State, northern Nigeria, on March 28, 2015Nigerian opposition leader Muhammadu Buhari held a lead of more than two million votes Tuesday in the country's general election, but with President Goodluck Jonathan's strongholds yet to report, the final result was too close to call. Just over half of Nigeria's states have declared returns in the vote pitting Jonathan against former military ruler Buhari in the closest election ever in Nigeria, Africa's most populous country and biggest economy. Buhari built his early lead in northern states dominated by the mainly Muslim, Hausa-Fulani ethnic group of which he is a member. So far, Buhari and his All Progressives Congress (APC) has won 10 states, with Jonathan, of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) taking eight plus the Federal Capital Territory of Abuja.

Japanese gay couple Hiroko Masuhara (L) thank Tokyo's Shibuya ward for its decision to issue "partnership" certificates to gay couples, outside the local government office on March 31, 2015A Tokyo council voted on Tuesday to issue "partnership" certificates to gay couples, the first such recognition of same-sex unions in Japan. Assembly members in Shibuya district -- a business and shopping hub that is home to international firms and embassies -- passed an ordinance that will allow their officials to start giving out the certificate as early as this summer. "I'm happy," said Koyuki Higashi, a gay rights campaigner who held a wedding ceremony with her female partner at Tokyo Disney Resort in 2013. "I hope this movement will be spread across Japan and discussions on same-sex marriages will accelerate," said Higashi, who has been living in Shibuya for four months, adding she and her partner Hiroko Masuhara plan to get a certificate.
