Turnout high in Zimbabwe's landmark election

Voters turn out in large numbers for Zimbabwe's first election since Robert Mugabe was ousted last year. Many hope it will be an opportunity for the country to start a new chapter. In Mali, counting is underway after Sunday's vote. Hundreds of polling stations saw disruptions or closures. And Comoros held a referendum to extend the presidential term limit and end a system of rotating power among the country's three main islands. The opposition has called the move a power grab.
