Tanzanian opposition says 40 volunteers arrested after election

Tanzania’s opposition Chadema party said on Monday police had detained 40 of its volunteers after a combined presidential and parliamentary election at the weekend, in an incident marring an otherwise broadly peaceful voting process. Another opposition party, the Civic United Front, said police fired teargas at a crowd of supporters celebrating what the party said was its victory in Sunday’s race on the semi-autonomous island of Zanzibar.
