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.
