Guinea-Bissau election: Vote count for presidential poll starts

Counting has begun in Guinea Bissau’s presidential election where President Jose Mario Vaz is seeking to extend another term.
However, Domingos Simoes Pereira of the powerful African Party of the Independence of Cape Verde and Guinea Bissau is the frontrunner in this race.
The impoverished country’s main challenges are fighting corruption and improving the economy, battered by years of political instability.

Al Jazeera’s Nicolas Haque reports from Bissau.
