Election officials count votes at the end of the voting exercise in Ethiopia's capital Addis AbabaBy Aaron Maasho ADDIS ABABA (Reuters) - African Union observers said on Tuesday that Ethiopia's parliamentary election held on Sunday was credible except for a few irregularities, but the opposition dismissed the vote as marred by violations including ballot box theft. Provisional results in Africa' second most populous nation are due later this week and few expect anything but a landslide for the ruling Ethiopian People's Revolutionary Democratic Front (EPRDF) coalition, in power since ousting dictator Mengistu Haile Mariam in 1991. Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn, who took over after EPRDF's long-serving leader Meles Zenawi died in 2012, has pushed on with EPRDF's highly-centralised statist economic model credited with turning around the fortunes of a country once ravaged by war and famine.

The three, all American-Iranian, were in court for around two hours before the session was adjourned, IRNA added. Iranian authorities have not released details of any charges and pressed on with the case in the face of calls from U.S. President Barack Obama, family members and rights groups for Rezaian's release and more information on the charges.
