Voters in Sudan went to the polls on Sunday in the country's first multi-party elections for 24 years.

The elections have been hit by allegations of fraud and vote-rigging biased towards Omar al-Bashir's ruling National Congress Party, and the major opposition candidates have pulled out of key races in protest.

But as Al Jazeera's Mohamed Adow reports, voters in the capital, Khartoum, are excited at the prospect of being able to vote for the first time in a generation.
