BBC NEWS, Mali:  "The announcement of the results of Sunday's
presidential election has been suspended after a computer technician had
a car accident, election officials have said. He is the only person with
the password to access the election centre's computers, they told
journalists at 0300 GMT on Monday."

There is a lesson here somewhere.
