VIDEO: Ghanaian soldiers break up protest over rumours of election rigging

Soldiers stand guard after security forces broke up a protest over rumors of alleged vote counting irregularities, as voting continued for an unplanned second day in Accra, Ghana, Saturday, Dec. 8, 2012.

Police fired water cannons and tear gas on hundreds of opposition party supporters who were protesting outside a house where they suspected ballots from the presidential and parliamentary election were being counted by a private company.
Electoral commission spokesman Christian Owusu-Parry said the accusations were unfounded.
