Uganda election: Yoweri Museveni faces Kizza Besigye

Ugandans have been going to the polls, with President Yoweri Museveni hoping to extend his 25 years in office.

But the opposition has accused the veteran leader of rigging his way to re-election.

Mr Museveni's former doctor, Kizza Besigye, is standing against him for the third time and has warned of protests if he is "cheated" of victory.

The BBC's Will Ross reports from the capital Kampala.
