  • The new London Irish

    Irish photographer Kim Cunningham’s latest project, photographs of the new London Irish – creative young Irish people who’ve moved to the British capital – line a wide corridor in the London Irish Centre in Camden.

The opposition All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers state accused supporters of President Goodluck Jonathan of being behind killings of its campaigners, and denounced the vote there as “a sham and a charade”. Dismissal of the vote in Rivers - a centre of the Nigerian oil industry - raises the prospect of a disputed national outcome and the risk of a repeat of violence that erupted after the last election in 2011, when 800 people were killed in the mainly Muslim north.
