Zimbabwe election officials say that President Robert Mugabe won the presidential election with 61 percent of the vote, compared to 34 percent for challenger Morgan Tsvangirai, who rejected Mugabe's landslide victory, alleging massive voting fraud and calling for fresh elections. Tsvangirai said he will challenge the results in court. Tsvangirai called for a peaceful response, despite the alleged voting fraud.
