Undercover in Burma as elections held

Vote counting has begun in Burma's first general elections for 20 years.

Ruling generals said that the vote marked the moved to democratic civil rule, but campaigning was severely restricted.

The main opposition party, the National League for Democracy led by Aung San Suu Kyi, boycotted the vote.
