Nairobi - Polling stations were closing in Kenya after a repeat presidential election that was marred in some areas by clashes between police and opposition protesters who say the vote isn't credible.

The official closing time for the voting sites was 17:00 (1400GMT) on Thursday, though election officials have said that polling stations that opened late because of what they called "logistical challenges" can stay open later.
