Opposition parties in Zimbabawe say they are going ahead with a planned march in the country's capital city, Harare, after receiving permission from a high court judge to do so.
However, the Zimbabwean police claim they are unaware of a court order and have placed restrictions on the march.
A mix of opposition supporters, called the National Electoral Reform Agenda (Nera), are demonstrating against changes to the voter registration process and want electoral reforms ahead of elections in 2018.
A correspondent for EWN has confirmed that police have prohibited the demonstrators from marching through the city centre.
"Protesters will have to confine themselves to an open space which activists call Freedom Square, just outside the city centre."
Police have only allowed a deputation of 10 to carry the petition to the offices of the electoral commission.
