The Miss World beauty pageant due to be held in Nigeria has been cancelled following deadly protests. Organizers say the pageant will, instead, be held in London on December 7th.
Opposition to the beauty pageant from Muslims in Nigeria sparked waves of deadly riots in recent days. More than 100 people were killed in the northern city of Kaduna.
Muslims rampaged through Abuja after Friday prayers, setting cars and shops ablaze and erecting barricades -- before security forces were able to restore order. Calm has also returned to Kaduna.
