Counting has begun in Kenya's elections. Initial results indicate the country's former finance minister, Uhuru Kenyatta has edged ahead of his rival Raila Odinga. Less violence has been reported than in 2007.
Kenyan police have said several people were killed in a shooting in Mombasa. It is the latest in a spate of attacks linked to Somali militants.
Thousands of Kenyans joined a Nairobi rally to highlight what they see as the government's failings - worsening insecurity, living costs, corruption, terror attacks. Some fear renewed ethnic strife.
Kenya's veteran opposition leader, Raila Odinga, has called for national dialogue and a timetable for the withdrawal of Kenyan troops from Somalia, hours after a fresh attack on the coast killed five people.
Kenyan politicians have become involved in public hate campaigns, even using social networks as a platform to spread propaganda. The atmosphere in the country is reminiscent of 2007 shortly before riots broke out.
