Zimbabweans vote in tense election

Go to Al Jazeera original
Zimbabweans are voting in an election which opponents of Robert Mugabe, the current president, say is being rigged in his favour.

Morgan Tsvangirai and Simba Makoni, the two other presidential candidates, have accused Mugabe's Zanu-PF party of adding phantom voters to the electoral roll and restricting access to state media.
About 9,000 polling stations began opening at 7am (0500 GMT) in elections for the presidency, parliament, senate and local councils. The vote is due to end 12 hours later.
