Picture gallery: Zambia parade
The centre of the Zambian capital, Lusaka, was brought to a standstill on Thursday when thousands of supporters of the opposition Forum for Democracy and Development (FDD) marched through the city.

The parade took place after the party's presidential candidate, Christon Tembo, filed his nomination papers at the Supreme Court. Mr Tembo gave a brief speech before leading the crowds through the centre of the city.
