BBC News with John Jason

The president of Georgia, Mikheil Saakashvili, says early exit polls after the presidential elections suggest he may have won outright in the first round. His supporters are already celebrating, but Georgian opposition groups say they don't believe the exit polls. Mathew Collin reports from T'bilisi.

Mr. Saakashvili said he would wait for the final results. But his statement suggests he's confident of outright victory without a potentially tense second round of voting. There was a mood of celebration at his campaign headquarters with bands playing and people dancing and cheering. But questions have been raised about whether the exit polls were accurate. The opposition says they were biased and is refusing to accept them. It says the elections weren't truly democratic and it's vowed to take its grievances back to the streets.

New efforts are due to begin shortly to tackle a worsening humanitarian crisis in Kenya where killing and looting followed the disputed presidential election. With food scarce across Kenya, the World Food Program expects a convoy of 20 trucks to leave the port of Mombasa, loaded with 666 tons of food, enough to feed 35, 000 people for a month. Patison Shierma works for the charity world vision Kenya and is a temporary camp for people driven from their homes in the Kibera slum in Nairobi. He said the numbers of displaced people were putting pressure on food supplies.

'Where I am now, I can see a lot of children, most of the people who are displaced are actually children and their mothers. And we are having a situation where we have to postpone the distribution of food and other commodities, because the number was just too much and we want to be sure we are dealing with most critically affected. '

In the latest stage of the race to be Republican Party candidate for president of United States, Mitt Romney has won a victory in the western state of Wyoming. Mr. Romney, a former governor of Massachusetts soaked most of the state's delegates picked in a series of Republican caucuses. Andrew Craig reports.

Republican voters in the thinly populated western state of Wyoming gave Mitt Romney a clear win. He took at least 7 of 12 delegates at stake. After the defeat by Mike Huckabee in the Iowa contest, it's a boost for the Romney campaign but only a small one, few of the 7 main candidates put much work into campaigning in Wyoming. In fact, the State of Republican Party defied the national leadership by holding its caucuses so early. The candidate's efforts and the attention of media remained focused firmly on New Hampshire where both Republicans and Democrats hold primaries on Tuesday.

Doctors treating former president Suharto of Indonesia say he is still in the critical condition. Mr. Suharto was taken to hospital in Jakarta on Friday suffering from kidney failure, anemia and a low blood pressure. The doctor said he was conscious and had received visitors including the current Indonesian leader as well as members of his family. Thomas Wang reports.

Mr. Suharto's illness returns to the spotlight, one of Asia's most significant leaders of the 20th century.

Another 200,000 were victims of his annexation of East Timor. And yet Mr. Suharto achieves stability and increasing prosperity for Indonesian people until the very last years of his rule.
