US to ignore Zimbabwe poll result
The world have lost interest in Zimbabwe,the country which was once at the center of attraction. The US will not recognise the outcome of Friday's pesidential election run off in Zimbabe, a senior state department official has said.
Opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai has pulled out of the poll, citing attacks by ruling party militias.
Mr Mugabe has vowed the vote will go ahead, despite international protests.
The opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) says some 86 of its supporters have been killed and 200,000 forced from their homes by militias loyal to the ruling Zanu-PF party. The government blames the MDC for the violence.
Mr Tsvangirai has been taking refuge in the Dutch embassy in Harare since late Sunday, saying he fears for his life. He has called for UN peacekeepers to enter Zimbabwe and protect MDC supporters until a new election can be held.
