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