4 March 2013 - Nairobi, Kenya - A woman has her finger marked by an Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) official as proof that she has voted during the Kenyan general elections in Nairobi, Kenya. Five years after more than 1,000 people were killed in election-related violence, Kenyans began casting votes in a nationwide election seen as the country's most important, and complicated, in its 50-year history. Uhuru Kenyatta, one of two top candidates for president, faces charges at the International Criminal Court for orchestrating the 2007-08 postelection violence. Photo credit: Benedicte Desrus
