Runner-up boycotts Guinea-Bissau presidential run-off

The runner-up in Sunday's presidential election in Guinea-Bissau has said he will not participate in a run-off vote.

Former president Kumba Yala has claimed the first round of voting was unfair and told the BBC's Focus on Africa programme: "This election wasn't fair - the numbers were fabricated. We have evidence that [Carlos Gomes] rigged the vote... and we will show them to the authorities." 

Provisional results from Sunday's poll gave ex-prime minister Carlos Gomez 49% of the vote out of nine candidates. Kumba Yala came in second with 23%.
