Zimbabwe police break up opposition event

Zimbabwean police with batons and shields have broken up a press conference by opposition leader Nelson Chamisa, who has alleged rigging of the presidential election.

Police have chased away reporters without explanation. There is no sign of Chamisa.

The electoral commission overnight announced that President Emmerson Mnangagwa, a former enforcer of longtime leader Robert Mugabe, had narrowly won Monday's election.

The opposition has threatened to challenge what they call the "fake" election results in court.
