Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan waves to the crowd during the 50th anniversary celebrations of Nigerian independence, in Abuja, Nigeria, Friday, Oct. 1, 2010. Two car bombs blew up on Friday as Nigeria celebrated, killing at least seven people in an unprecedented attack on the capital by suspected militants from the country's oil region. The attacks claimed by the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta came as the president and other dignitaries sat only a 10-minute walk away. "There is nothing worth celebrating after 50 years of failure," read a statement issued by the group shortly before the attack. (AP Photo) less
