Ethiopian opposition cries foul

As country prepares to hold vote, ruling party is accused of violence and intimidation.

    Campaigning in Ethiopia has ended in the run-up to Sunday's election. Meles Zenawi, the current prime minister, is seeking a fourth term in office.

    He told Al Jazeera he does not expect a repeat of the violence that marred the 2005 poll. But as Andrew Simmons now reports, opposition groups are accusing the governing party of intimidation and violence.
