Mugabe rival leaves Dutch embassy

left the Dutch embassy in Harare, where he took refuge last week, a
Dutch official has said.

A Dutch foreign ministry official said Mr Tsvangirai had decided the situation was calm enough for him to return home.

Mr Tsvangirai went to the embassy fearing for his safety after
pulling out of last Friday’s presidential run-off, because of election
violence.

President Robert Mugabe claimed victory in the vote.

The election has been widely criticised by Western leaders as not being free or fair.

Mr Tsvangirai had won the first round of the presidential election in March, but not by enough to avoid a run-off.
