In Zimbabwe, soldiers and police fired live rounds at opposition protesters in the capital, Harare, Wednesday, as the African nation awaited the results of Monday's pivotal general election, the first in 38 years without former leader Robert Mugabe on the ballot. At least two people were shot dead in the capital in protests that were met with swift action from security forces. Tension is building, and observers say this could be another turning point for Zimbabwe.
