Yar'Adua confirmed dead

From the AFP:
Nigerian president Umaru Yar'Adua has died, his office confirmed late Wednesday.

"It is true that the president is dead," an official at the office said.
Our thoughts and sympathy are with the people of Nigeria. I know all the readers of this blog join me in hoping for a smooth transition of power and peaceful days ahead.
