In this Friday, Sept. 7, 2012 photo, Sri Lankan police and polling officers wait to transport election material to a polling station in Batticaloa, Sri Lanka. Sri Lankans voted Saturday in a provincial assembly election seen as a test of whether ethnic minority Tamils still want self-rule or are satisfied with government-led economic development in a region devastated by a quarter-century civil war. As of noon, only small numbers of voters had turned out at polling booths in Batticaloa, one of three districts in Eastern Province. (AP Photo/Eranga Jayawardena) less
