Guinea-Bissau: Opposition wants 'fraud-riddled' vote cancelled

Guinea-Bissau's opposition demanded Tuesday the cancellation of the presidential poll they charge was a sham, further stoking fears of trouble in the coup-prone state after a high-level assassination.

Vote counting is still under way under increased security after former military intelligence chief Colonel Samba Diallo was shot dead just hours after polling closed on Sunday in the volatile west African nation.

According to the AFP, five leading presidential hopefuls including former president Kumab Yala, said the vote was riddled with fraud and irregularities, despite observers having given it a clean bill of health.

Provisional election results are expected this weekend. If no candidate wins outright, a second round will be held between April 22-29
