President's choice given lead in provisional Malagasy poll results

Madagascar still has a wait ahead but it looks like the next man to lead the impoverished country is the current president's choice, candidate Hery.

Kigali denies hunting down defectors. And the last two years have been tough for Mali and the thousands who have fled the country, but many are willing to risk returning.
