This order came down after a Muslim mob killed a Christian:
LAGOS, Nigeria (AP) - Soldiers patrolling Nigeria's volatile central region received shoot-to-kill orders after a Christian mob killed a Muslim election worker and set his body on fire, an army spokesman said Tuesday.
Jonathan, who became acting head of state in February while President Umaru Yar'Adua recovers from illness, called for calm.
"He calls on all Nigerians to remain peaceful and law abiding since violence only begets further violence," the release said.
