Long lines of Kenyans queued from far before dawn to vote Monday in critical elections, the first since violent polls five years ago, with five policemen killed in an ambush in Mombasa hours before polling started. The tense elections are seen as a key test for Kenya, with leaders vowing to avoid a repeat of the bloody 2007-8 post-poll violence in which over 1,100 people were killed, with observers repeatedly warning of the risk of renewed conflict.
