Zimbabwe's ruling party ZANU-PF announced Friday it would back President Robert Mugabe in a runoff vote against opposition presidential candidate Morgan Tsvangirai, while the opposition party demanded an official tally from the first vote.

President Robert Mugabe faced an uncertain future for the first time in his 28-year rule of Zimbabwe, after the opposition claimed victory in last weekend's presidential race and his ruling party lost control of parliament, official results show.

Some 6,000 members of Zimbabwe's armed forces will receive land under the country's controversial redistribution program, President Robert Mugabe has announced, and 600 others will benefit from the recent razing of shanty towns in the capital Harare.
