Ashanti Region: Police rescue kidnapped woman from robbers

A police armoured tank barricades the main road leading to the headquaters of the Ghanaian Electoral Commission before the commission announced the final results of the presidential and parliamentary elections in Accra on December 10, 2008. The country's security forces said they were stepping up security as part of its post-election plan to keep law and order -- mounting check points along main streets in the capital and increase joint police and military patrols, said police spokesman Kwesi Ofori.
