Zimbabwe poll results to be released 'very soon'

Zimbabwe's electoral commission has told reporters it will announce the results of Monday's presidential election "very soon".

Zimbabwe's state broadcaster earlier tweeted that the commission said it would announce those results at 21:00. That tweet has been deleted.

By law the commission has five days from Monday's election to release the results.
