President Barack Obama has been re-elected to a second term, defeating Republican challenger Mitt Romney.
With most US states reporting results, America's first black president has won a majority of electoral votes.
Mr Obama prevailed despite lingering dissatisfaction with the economy and a well-funded challenger in Mr Romney, a former governor of Massachusetts.

With many states still reporting results, Mr Obama's margin of victory was not yet certain.
