Zimbabwe Challengers Ask Court to Nullify Election

Wochit 1:03 mins

The Movement for Democratic Change, the main opponents in Zimbabwe?s national election, filed a legal challenge to the country?s highest court, contending that the party of President Robert G. Mugabe rigged the vote in order to claim a landslide victory. They cited widespread irregularities and demanded that the election be nullified. President Barack Obama signed into law a measure restoring lower interest rates for student loans, pledging the hard-fought compromise would be just the first step in a broader, concerted fight to rein in the costs of a college education. Responding to critics, President Barack Obama promised to work with Congress on "appropriate reforms" for domestic surveillance programs that were thrust into the public eye by leaker Edward Snowden, saying he understands why Americans are skeptical about the collection of telephone and Internet information.
