Mozambique election: Opposition says results 'rigged'

Mozambique's opposition cries foul and calls for a new vote after being defeated in every province in the recent election.

    Mozambique's opposition has called for the results of recent elections to be annulled.

    Opposition parties said the vote was rigged, after the governing FRELIMO party won in every province, including areas where the opposition usually dominates.

    A close-run race had been expected and some observers and many Mozambicans have said the results are unbelievable.
