Armed thugs raid opposition headquarters

Not good:

Armed men have raided the headquarters of Togo’s opposition, shortly before presidential election polls closed.

The attackers, some in military uniform, took computers which the opposition was planning to use to collate results from the day’s polling.

Akitani has already denounced the election as marred with fraud.

[UPDATE: Voice of America and Agence France Presse report several serious injuries and at least three deaths following violent incidents after the polls closed.]
