Zimbabwe opposition condemns army opening fire 'for no apparent reason'

The Zimbabwean MDC opposition party on Wednesday condemned the army for opening fire on protesters who were demonstrating against alleged fraud in the country's election, after three people were killed.

"We saw the deployment of military tanks and the firing of live ammunition for no apparent reason. We condemn in the strongest sense the action taken today," MDC spokesperson Nkululeko Sibanda told reporters.
