President Idriss Deby is confident of victory in controversial presidential elections in Chad - largely because the opposition are boycotting the polls.
There was much excitement among the crowd as they watched Mr Deby and his wife cast their ballots at a polling station, where security was tight.
So far, threats from rebels to disrupt the voting have failed to materialise. Polling stations have been quiet and voting reported to be calm...
... But elsewhere the mood was much more low-key and turnout has been very low in the capital, N'Djamena, with most people staying at home, according to reports.
Many in Chad are keen to see peace. With official results not due for 10 days, there are still fears of more rebel assaults, like the failed attack on the capital three weeks ago.
