Supporters of opposition candidate Gen. Muhammadu Buhari's All Progressives Congress (APC) party celebrate what they said was the senatorial win in Kano Central district of APC candidate Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, in Kano, northern Nigeria Monday, March 30, 2015. Nigerians are waiting in hope and fear for results of the most tightly contested presidential election in the nation's turbulent history. (AP Photo/Ben Curtis)Nigeria's main opposition on Tuesday claimed victory in the country's tense general election as former military ruler Muhammadu Buhari pulled ahead of President Goodluck Jonathan in the vote count. With 32 out of 37 results in, Buhari's All Progressives Congress (APC) had won 19 states with Jonathan's Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on 12 plus the Federal Capital Territory of Abuja. "This is the first time the opposition has voted a government out of power in Nigeria's history," he added. They included the northeastern states hit hardest by the six-year Boko Haram insurgency.

Tehran hit back, accusing Saudi Arabia of putting the entire Middle East in jeopardy. "We believe that the Saudi military attack against Yemen is a strategic mistake," he told reporters in Kuwait, calling for the air campaign to "stop immediately".
