Zimbabwe's opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai says he is pulling out of Friday's presidential run-off, handing victory to President Robert Mugabe.Mr Tsvangirai said there was no point running when elections would not be free and fair and "the outcome is determined by… Mugabe himself". He called on the global community to step in to prevent "genocide".
