Long lines of Kenyans queued from far before dawn to vote Monday in the first election since the violence racked polls five years ago, with a deadly police ambush hours before polling started marring the key ballot. The tense elections are seen as a crucial test for Kenya, with leaders vowing to avoid a repeat of the bloody 2007 to 2008 post poll violence in which over 1,100 people were killed, with observers repeatedly warning of the risk of renewed conflict.
