Tensions are running high in Zimbabwe’s capital of Harare after police confirmed three people were killed during protests surrounding the country’s presidential election, which some allege was marred by fraud. Monday’s vote was the first since former president Robert Mugabe was forced out of power in November. Mugabe’s successor, President Emmerson Mnangagwa, is running against opposition leader Nelson Chamisa. Supporters of Chamisa say the vote was rigged in favor of Mnangagwa; their protests have been met with gunfire from government soldiers, with both sides now blaming the other for the violence. Zimbabwe's Electoral Commission warned that final presidential results may not be known until Friday or Saturday.
