Minor incidents were reported in the Indian Ocean archipelago of the Comoros during the second round of a parliamentary election seen as a test for former leader Abdallah Sambi, a Muslim populist preparing a comeback.
The results of the election are expected to give an indication of Sambi's support ahead of next year's presidential election. The election was seen as a face-off between Sambi's Juwa party and the party of President Ikililou Dhoinine, whose five-year term ends in May 2016.
Fist fights broke out at two polling stations in the capital Moroni on Grande Comore island, between Juwa supporters and members of another party, an AFP reporter witnessed.
In another district, shops owned by people from Anjouan — another of the three islands making up Comoros, which is Sambi's home island — were defaced with graffiti.
By midday Sunday, there were no official turnout figures available. The results of the voting are not expected for several days.
