Angolans are voting for a new president and parliament, in the second national elections since the oil-rich country's 27-year civil war ended a decade ago.

Most polling stations in the capital, Luanda, seemed to open on time despite fears of logistical problems.

Former rebel group Unita, now the main opposition party, had called for a delay, alleging irregularities.
