Zimbabwe In "War Situation"

Zimbabwe security general said that the country is "in a war situation on Sunday, according to the BBC.
This is in response to 10 people being killed, along with hundreds injured and thousands displaced by post-election violence.
The violence started after belief that election votes may have been tampered with. A recount was granted and was said to take up to three days, but instead has taken three weeks after the polls were held.
The losing party said they rightfully won the election and demanded the results be released, according to the Los Angeles Times..
Those that have been accused of tampering have also been said to be trying to prevent people being "seduced" into violence but are getting frustrated about the lack of jobs, food and medicine.
The 57 member African Union urged Zimbabwe to release the results as soon as possible and calling restraint from all parties.
