ZIMBABWE:

  • ZIMBABWE: Cities across Zimbabwe that had expected mass anti-corruption demonstrations were instead deserted on Friday as security forces deployed widely and police said that protesters would be “regarded as terrorists.”  Ahead of Friday’s planned protests, numerous opposition officials, activists and journalists and their family members were detained or arrested by authorities.
