An independent election observers group is urging the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission to urgently release results from individual polling stations to allay concerns about possible irregularities in Monday's vote.

The local Zimbabwe Election Support Network says the commission should post the information on its website "to enhance transparency and accountability."

The commission overnight announced that President Emmerson Mnangagwa won a free and fair election, but the opposition alleges the vote was rigged.

Six people died when the military cracked down on opposition protests in the capital, Harare, on Wednesday.
