Zimbabwe votes on new constitution

Zimbabweans have begun voting in a key referendum on a new constitution, amid simmering political tensions.

Both main parties - Zanu-PF and the MDC - are urging their supporters to back the constitution, which would pave way for new elections later this year.

The polls could end a shaky power-sharing deal between the rival parties following a disputed vote in 2008.
