Sudan holds landmark multi-party elections


Voters in Sudan have cast their ballots on the opening day of its first multi-party elections in 24 years.

The polls for president, parliament and state assemblies are being held as part of the peace deal that ended the civil war between north and south Sudan.

But several key parties and politicians opposed to President Omar al-Bashir are boycotting the vote amid fraud fears.
