Tsvangarai pulls out of run off vote


HARARE (Reuters) - Zimbabwe opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai withdrew on Sunday from the June 27 presidential run-off election, citing political violence and an unfair poll that would favour President Robert Mugabe.

"We in the MDC (Movement for Democratic Change) have resolved that we will no longer participate in this violent, illegitimate sham of an election process," he told reporters in Harare, before urging the United Nations and African Union to intervene to prevent a "genocide".
