Mozambican Polls Close, Vote Counting Begins

Polls have closed in Mozambique and vote counting has begun. Early reports from observers suggest there was a low turn-out in the presidential, parliamentary and provincial elections which are seen as a test of a recent peace deal between the ruling Frelimo party and the opposition Renamo. Official results are not expected until two weeks after the close of polls.
