Video claims to show 'Sudan election fraud'


Sudanese opposition activists say a video which apparently shows election officials stuffing ballot boxes proves their claims of poll rigging.

The polls - presidential, parliamentary and regional - were the first multi-party elections since 1986 and part of a north-south deal to end two decades of war.

The complicated ballot was beset by problems and heavily criticised by the Sudanese opposition and local observers.

The clip, which has not been independently verified, was been posted on YouTube.

James Copnall reports.
