Via the AP: Zimbabwe Opposition Leader in Custody

Zimbabwe’s main opposition leader, Morgan Tsvangirai, was taken into police custody, an aide said Wednesday.

”Tsvangirai and a number of others we have not been able to identify have been taken by police in a bus,” said aide Eliphas Mukonoweshuro. ”We don’t know their whereabouts. We don’t know if they have been charged.”


Tsvangirai and 12 senior opposition colleagues were hospitalized after a March 11 crackdown on a prayer meeting and alleged they were assaulted with clubs and iron bars while under arrest.
