Political Activists Beaten Up By Soldiers in Zimbabwe

Victims told to lie down before being beaten with logs


Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai said he learnt with great shock and concern about the savage beatings of MDC-T activists in Zhombe, by uniformed members of the Zimbabwe National Army last week.

The attack on the supporters left 40 injured, five of them seriously, when soldiers went on a rampage at Samambwa business centre in Zhombe, in the Midlands province. Tsvangirai said soldiers should not be terrorizing citizens who they are supposed to be protecting from external attacks.
