· Despite the extreme tension, the turn-out seems to be very high ·
The death toll has reached at least 17 in the last few hours in Kenya, where today presidential elections are being held. This announcement was made by David Kimaiyo, inspector-general of the national police. All the victims were recorded before the voting opened. Last night in Mombasa, the country's second city, patrol agents were ambushed in the suburb of Changamwe by more than 200 armed young people: six people were killed on both sides. The assailants are believed to belong to the MRC, Mombasa Republican Council, a separatist movement fighting for the secession of the coastal area from the rest of Kenya.
