Nigeria is postponing presidential elections because of security concerns - specifically about Boko Haram.
The elections were scheduled for February 14. Now the country's voting commission says it's pushing the vote back to March 28.
Boko Haram has reportedly killed more than 10,000 people since 2009. The terror group currently controls a large area in the northeast corner of the country and has recently started to push past Nigeria's borders, attacking towns in Niger and Cameroon. (Video via TVC News)
