Zimbabwe opposition official freed, lawyer says

A lawyer says Zimbabwe senior opposition official Tendai Biti has been released after being arrested while trying to enter Zambia and is now seeking asylum.

Denford Halimani says details are not immediately clear on the circumstances around Biti's release but the lawyer can confirm that he is now on Zambian soil.

Biti is part of the opposition Movement for Democratic Change party that has denounced as fraud last week's election win of President Emmerson Mnangagwa. The MDC has said it will challenge the election results in court this week.
