The European Union is appealing for calm in Zimbabwe a day after deadly violence linked to Monday's elections that the EU says were marred by "shortcomings."

EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini's office says in a statement that "we appeal for calm and restraint on all sides and for protests to be conducted according to the law."

The statement notes that "a number of shortcomings were observed, including the lack of a truly level playing field" surrounding the vote.

It calls for the final election results to be "shared in a manner which provides for full transparency and accountability, including a breakdown by polling station."
