Romania court orders recount of void votes (BBC)
Romania's constitutional court has ordered a recount of void votes from last weekend's presidential election.

The opposition Social Democrat party had challenged the result of vote, alleging widespread rigging.

The court said 138,000 void ballots would be counted - well above the narrow margin of 70,000 which gave President Traian Basescu victory.

Social Democrat candidate Mircea Geoana, who lost by less than 1%, had called for a new election.

Mr Geoana's party said it knew of 13,000 cases of multiple voting, and had received nationwide reports of bribery and vote-rigging.
