Uganda elections start with millions coming out to vote (Photos)
The Associated Press reports:
Millions of Ugandans have come out to vote in the east African nation's presidential ballot pitting the country's long-serving president Yoweri Museveni against his former ally and personal physician, Kizza Besigye.
Voters in Uganda faced the choice Friday of extending their president's 25-year grip on power or joining the anti-incumbent wave sweeping Africa and the Middle East and voting Museveni out of office.
There were reports that polling was delayed and Besigye has threatened protests if the voting results are tampered with. He insists Uganda is ready for an Egypt-style revolt.
