MUGABE RIVAL 'CLEAR' WINNER - U.S.

Morgan Tsvangirai has left Zimbabwe amid fears for his safety.

Zimbabwe opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai was the "clear" victor of last month's poll, a top US envoy says.
Jendayi Frazer was speaking in South Africa, at the start of a tour to lobby Zimbabwe's neighbours to put pressure on President Robert Mugabe.
The results of the presidential election have not been released.
Mr Tsvangirai says he won outright but the ruling party has said no candidate gained 50% of the vote, so a run-off will be needed.
The opposition says its supporters are being attacked ahead of the run-off - claims denied by the government.
Earlier, the leaders of the Anglican church called for international action to prevent violence in Zimbabwe reaching "horrific levels".
Meanwhile, a Chinese foreign ministry official said a ship carrying weapons to Zimbabwe might return to China.
