Abkhazia leader wins second term - results
The president of Abkhazia, Sergei Bagapsh, was elected for a second term in a vote hailed by Russia, according to preliminary results on Sunday.

Abkhazia held its first election on Saturday since Russia recognised the Black Sea territory as an independent state after a brief war with Georgia in August last year.

Russian election observers said voting was fair and transparent, but the opposition complained of widespread irregularities and threatened to challenge the result.
