Cry Freedom

The BBC has the latest on police brutality against the leader of Zimbabwe's opposition Movement for Democratic Change and other members of The Save Zimbabwe Campaign: Zimbabwe's Tsvangirai 'beaten up' (cf. yesterday's crushed prayer rally, at which one activist was shot dead by police).

They report that Morgan Tsvangirai can hardly walk or open his eyes and has his head bandaged and a swollen face after being beaten by police in custody; also that another prominent government critic suffered a broken arm and had to be rushed to hospital after passing out.
