Voting has ended in Zimbabwe where President Robert Mugabe is standing for a sixth term in office. Despite opposition claims of vote rigging, the chairman of Zimbabwe's Electoral Commission George Chiweshe said he was not aware of any problems. Our Southern Africa correspondent Peter Biles reports.

 

It's likely to be a day or two at least before all the results from these elections are declared. The process is unusually complicated because for the first time in Zimbabwe four separate polls have been taking place. There's the presidential election, voting for the two Houses of Parliament and local council elections. It's thought the counting and collation of the presidential votes could take the longest. Although there were long queues of voters at some polling stations in the capital Harare, the overall turnout could be quite low. The votes from the countryside where around 2/3 of the electorate lives will be decisive.
 
The Iraqi authorities have extended the curfew in the capital Baghdad indefinitely. It was imposed on Thursday and was to expire in a few hours time. From Baghdad, Crispin Thorold reports.
 
The enforcement of curfew in Baghdad on Thursday night was a sign of how much security in the capital had deteriorated in a short time. It was meant to come to an end early on Sunday morning, the start of the working week. Now the government has extended the curfew indefinitely. That's a decision that will damage the capital economically as well as inconvenience in the people who live here. But the security forces hope a continuing curfew would give them time to get greater control of the areas of the capital where there are still clashes.

 

The American Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is in Israel for talks aimed at advancing the stalled Middle East Peace Process. She told reporters that she would press for the easing of restrictions on Palestinians living in the West Bank. Her visit coincides with the opening of an Arab Summit in neighboring Syria, one of the Arab world's most persistent critics of US policy. The main Arab allies of the United States, Egypt, Jordan and Saudi Arabia sent only low-level delegations to the meeting. They blame Syria for the political crisis in Lebanon and oppose its support for the militant group Hamas and Hezbollah. Syria has accused the US of trying to undermine the summit. Syrian government minister Doctor Bouthaina Shaaban said it was gratifying that the summit would proceed despite US pressures.

 

I don't think there is any block to the summit at all. I think we have taken into account the pressures that have been exerted by Dick Cheney and Condoleezza Rice, and others for some Arab leaders not to come. We would find it gratifying that so many Arab leaders did come to the summit.

 

The British military in Basra says its forces have been involved in the fighting between the Iraqi army and Shiite militiamen for the first time. The British military spokesman Major Tom Holloway said British artillery fired at insurgents at the request of the Iraqi forces who had come under attack. Until now, British involvement in Southern Iraq has been limited to surveillance flights.

One of the Democratic Party contenders for the US presidency Hillary Clinton has rejected calls by supporters of her rival Barack Obama to abandon her campaign. She was responding to comments by Senator Patrick Leahy, supporter of Mr. Obama, who said that by remaining in the race, she was helping the Republican candidate John McCain. Mrs. Clinton is trailing Mr. Obama in the number of delegates needed to obtain the nomination, but the latest opinion polls show her leading Mr. Obama in the next major primary in Pennsylvania.
 
There has been disruption for a third day at the new Terminal Five at Heathrow Airport in London. Nearly 70 British Airways flights have been canceled and more cancellations are expected on Sunday. British Airways has told the BBC that at least 15,000 bags are stranded at different terminals at the airport. A passenger en route to Cyprus Peter Williams told the BBC his flight would be leaving without any luggage on board.
 
There seems to be a very big problem with the luggage system at Terminal Five still, because we've just been given the choice of either getting off the plane and not flying to Larnaca today but with no guarantee when we could get our bags from Terminal Five or staying on the plane but not flying with our bags.
 
The government in Afghanistan has condemned a television program that showed pictures of men and women dancing together. The Ministry of Information and Culture said the dancing which was shown on Tolo TV was against the beliefs and traditions of Islam in Afghanistan and undermined the morals of the young. It said the broadcast would be referred to a government media monitoring body to decide if it had broken the law. Tolo TV is one of Afghanistan's most popular channels.

 

And here in Britain, Oxford have beaten Cambridge to win the 154th university boat race. Oxford the heavier crew took the lead halfway through the race on the River Thames and won easily by more than six lengths. It was the slowest race since 1947. Cambridge lead the series with one dead heat in 1877.

Voting has ended in Zimbabwe where President Robert Mugabe is standing for a sixth term in office. Despite opposition claims of vote rigging, the Chairman of Zimbabwe's Electoral Commission George Chiweshe said he was not aware of any problems. Our Southern Africa correspondent Peter Biles reports.

It's likely to be a day or two at least before all the results from these elections are declared. The process is unusually complicated because for the first time in Zimbabwe four separate polls have been taking place. There's the presidential election, voting for the two Houses of Parliament and local council elections. It's thought the counting and collation of the presidential votes could take the longest. Although there were long queues of voters at some polling stations in the capital Harare, the overall turnout could be quite low. The votes from the countryside where around 2/3 of the electorate lives will be decisive.

 

The Iraqi authorities have extended the curfew in the capital Baghdad indefinitely. It was imposed on Thursday and was to expire in a few hours time. From Baghdad, Crispin Thorold reports.

 

The enforcement of curfew in Baghdad on Thursday night was a sign of how much security in the capital had deteriorated in a short time. It was meant to come to an end early on Sunday morning, the start of the working week. Now the government has extended the curfew indefinitely. That's a decision that will damage the capital economically as well as inconvenience in the people who live here. But the security forces hope a continuing curfew would give them time to get greater control of the areas of the capital where there are still clashes.

The American Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is in Israel for talks aimed at advancing the stalled Middle East Peace Process. She told reporters that she would press for the easing of restrictions on Palestinians living in the West Bank. Her visit coincides with the opening of an Arab Summit in neighboring Syria, one of the Arab world's most persistent critics of US policy. The main Arab allies of the United States, Egypt, Jordan and Saudi Arabia sent only low-level delegations to the meeting. They blame Syria for the political crisis in Lebanon and oppose its support for the militant group Hamas and Hezbollah. Syria has accused the US of trying to undermine the summit. Syrian government minister Doctor Bouthaina Shaaban said it was gratifying that the summit would proceed despite US pressures.

 "I don't think there is any block to the summit at all, I think we have taken into account the pressures that have been exerted by Dick Cheney and Condoleezza Rice, and others for some Arab leaders not to come, we would find it’s gratifying that so many Arab leaders did come to the summit."

The British military in Basra says its forces have been involved in the fighting between the Iraqi army and Shiite militiamen for the first time. The British military spokesman Major Tom Holloway said British artillery fired at / insurgents at the request of the Iraqi forces who had come under attack. Until now, British involvement in Southern Iraq has been limited to surveillance flights.
