Zimbabwe to begin ballot recount
Election officials in Zimbabwe are due to begin recounting some of the votes cast in polls held three weeks ago.
The recount in 23 of 210 constituencies could overturn the parliamentary result which saw Zanu-PF lose its majority.
Results of the presidential poll, which the opposition MDC says it won, have not been released. There is speculation the recount may lead to a run-off vote.
Meanwhile, a Chinese ship carrying arms to Zimbabwe has left a South African port after workers would not unload it.
The leader of the opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC), Morgan Tsvangirai, is adamant he won the presidential election outright and says he will not take part in a second round of voting.
But the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission says it cannot release the results until it investigates anomalies.
