PICS: Counting by candlelight and lanterns underway in Zimbabwe's historic vote
The last of Zimbabwe's voters have cast their ballots by the light of lanterns, candles and mobile phones as counting is underway in a historic election.
The final results are expected within five days in the first election since the departure of former leader Robert Mugabe, who led for 37 years but resigned in November under military pressure.

Voting was peaceful in a break from the violence in past elections.
Zimbabweans hope a credible vote will bring the lifting of international sanctions and the revival of a shattered economy.
