Millions Found Hidden in Zimbabwe Minister's Mansion - Report

Finance Minister Ignatius Chombo has been found with a staggering amount of U.S.$10 million hidden in the confines of his house, according to reports. Chombo, who is a close ally of First Lady Grace Mugabe, is reported to have been detained after gunfire was exchanged between his security and members of the army. The military has taken over the southern African country, placing Mugabe under house arrest and detaining senior government officials in what many are expecting to be the beginning of a transition of power.
