Sri Lanka's Marxist-backed Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapakse won the closely-fought presidency with a narrow 50.33 per cent of the popular vote, beating his nearest rival, right-wing Ranil Wickremesinghe.

Minority Tamil voters in the northern Jaffna peninsula, most of which is in LTTE control, had boycotted the Thursday's election en masse with election monitors decrying the Tigers for intimidating the populace.

Thursday 7 OctoberAustrian novelist and playwright Elfriede Jelinek became the 10th woman to win the Nobel prize for Literature. The Swedish Academy citation praised Jelinek for "her musical flow of voices and counter-voices in novels and plays that with extraordinary linguistic zeal reveal the absurdity of society's clichés and their subjugating power". Best known for her novel, The Piano Teacher, which was made into a film by Michael Haneke in 2001, Jelinek withdrew from public life in 1996 after being termed a purveyor of pornographic, low art by the right-wing Freedom Party, which she vehemently opposes.
