Tsvangirai's MDC says 'monumental fraud' in Zimbabwe vote

HARARE (Reuters) - Zimbabwe Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai's MDC party on Thursday said Zimbabwe's elections had been a "monumental fraud" after a source in President Robert Mugabe's ZANU-PF earlier claimed a resounding victory.

"It's a monumental fraud. Zimbabweans have been taken for a ride by ZANU-PF and Mugabe, we do not accept it," a senior source in the Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) told Reuters.

The MDC will hold an emergency meeting later on Thursday.
