    The European Commission called on Friday for Zimbabwe to allow international monitors to ensure a free and fair presidential run-off after the electoral body there said no clear winner emerged from the first round. "We call for an international observation presence right from the start of the proceedings," the EU executive body said in a statement, insisting that the second round must be "free and fair and run in the correct way".

    Earlier, Zimbabwes electoral commission said opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai defeated President Robert Mugabe in the March 29 presidential election but failed to win an outright majority, paving the way for a run-off.

    Authorities in Athens confiscated some 20 tonnes of spoilt rice, shortly before hitting the market. In particular, the inspections carried out on 29 April located 20 tonnes of Bangladeshi rice packed in 800 sacks full of insects. A confiscation order was immediately issued and import was forbidden.
