More on President Vladimir Voronin's Transdniestrian birthplace of Corjova, where separatist authorities prevented voters from getting to the polls.

RFE/RL correspondent Ahto Lobjakas, who spent part of the day traveling in the breakaway region of Transdniester, says French National Assembly member Henri Plagnol told him tonight that the ballot box from President Vladimir Voronin's birthplace of Corjova has gone missing. Just like that.

That's just what happened last time, the locals told Lobjakas.

Plagnol is part of an international observer mission. More on him soon, because he made a fascinating discovery in a place outside Chisinau called Orhei Vechi.
