Kenyatta takes early election lead
Election officials in Kenya are counting votes from the country's presidential election, and the candidate who faces charges at the International Criminal Court has taken an early lead.
With a third of the vote counted, early results showed Deputy Prime Minister Uhuru Kenyatta leading Prime Minister Raila Odinga 54% to 41%. Few votes have been counted from Odinga's stronghold, the western city of Kisumu.
Long queues formed around the country on Monday. Election officials estimate that turnout was about 70% . Attacks by separatists on the coast killed 19 people.
Kenyatta faces charges at the International Criminal Court on allegations that he helped orchestrate post-election violence in 2007-08, when more than 1,000 people were killed.
