International criticism is mounting on Zimbabwe after opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai pulled out of a presidential run-off because of pre-poll violence.
Zambia’s leader Levy Mwanawasa, who heads a regional bloc, said a vote held in current conditions would be an “embarrassment” to the region. The US urged UN action over President Robert Mugabe’s “illegitimate” regime.
Zimbabwe’s ruling party said opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai had withdrawn from the poll to avoid “humiliation”.
