ZIMBABWEANS ACTIVISTS ORDERED BACK TO JAIL


A Zimbabwean court on Tuesday ordered 18 activists facing charges of terrorism back to prison after they were indicted for trial next month, a decision likely to spark new tensions in the unity government.

The activists, including leading rights campaigner Jestina Mukoko and several opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) members, say they were abducted by state security agents from their homes late year and tortured to force them to confess to planning to remove President Robert Mugabe from power.
