Zimbabwe court hears election case

Zimbabwe's High Court has finally started hearing from opposition lawyers.

They're trying to force the country's presidential election results to be released immediately.

The delay has fuelled speculation that President Robert Mugabe is buying time to organise a fight back or trying to rig the vote.

He wants a recount, saying there have been errors and miscalculations.

The country appears to be heading for a run-off Presidential poll between Mr Mugabe and the Movement for Democratic Change leader Morgan Tsvangirai.
