Zimbabwe's Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) has said it could take to the streets to challenge President Mugabe's victory in elections it rejects as a farce.

"Demonstrations and mass action are options," party spokesman Douglas Mwonzora said.

African Union 'wants more details on Zimbabwe polls'

The African Union has said it is reserving judgement on whether Zimbabwe's elections were systemically flawed until further details of the disputed vote are clarified.

The head of the AU's observer mission, Olusegun Obasanjo said that voting was peaceful, and that "could have been avoided and even tended to have breached the law."

The mission is asking authorities to investigate reports that large numbers of eligible voters were turned away from polling stations on Wednesday.
