The police in Zimbabwe have raided the headquarters of the country’s main opposition party in Harare and have reportedly arrested scores of activists.

Movement for Democratic Change, MDC, spokesman Nelson Chamisa said those arrested had fled political violence.

The MDC says its activists have been attacked around the country, with at least 10 killed since the elections.

Many have reportedly fled to Harare and other towns, seeking medical treatment.

But the police say the raid was aimed at looking for those responsible for arson attacks.

The MDC is insisting that it won last month\'s presidential election, the results of which are yet to be published.

However, the ruling Zanu-PF party says there is likely to be a run-off, as no candidate gained more than 50 percent of the vote.
