Partial recount in Mexico presidential election ordered

Electoral authorities in Mexico have announced they will recount votes cast at more than half of the polling stations in Sunday's presidential election after finding inconsistencies.

Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador of the leftist PRD had demanded a total recount after initial results put him in second place.

He accused leading candidate Enrique Pena Nieto of breaking electoral rules.

Mr Pena Nieto of the PRI denied allegations his party had bought votes.
