View from a polling station as Yemen votes to oust Saleh

People in Yemen have been voting to elect a new president to replace veteran leader Ali Abdullah Saleh.

They are expected to rubber-stamp Vice-President Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi who is the only candidate in Tuesday's poll.

The poll comes after a year of violent anti-government protests in the Arabian peninsula's poorest country.
