Voting got under way on Tuesday in tense Mozambique elections that are feared could test the country's fragile peace, after a heated campaign marred by violence and allegations of electoral fraud.

President Filipe Nyusi cast his vote as polls opened at 7:00 am (0500 GMT) for his ruling Frelimo party, which has been in power for 44 years and is widely expected to beat arch-rivals Renamo, a former rebel group turned main opposition party.
