Elections in East Timor

The first elections in East Timor since it gained independence in 2002 were held today, according to BBC News. Though the UN did have to fly in extra ballots to some areas, the voting was calm and ordered, officials say.

Official results will be in April 16. There is not expected to be an outright winner, so a run-off is likely.
