activist1Eighteen Zimbabwean opposition activists detained in jail and facing terrorism charges will be released on bail on Wednesday, a defence lawyer said.

“The attorney-general has consented to bail, so we are going to court… to have the agreement effected by the magistrate,” defence lawyer Harrison Nkomo told Reuters. The activists were ordered back to jail on Tuesday, drawing condemnation from Western countries and human rights groups.
