U.S. Imposes Sanctions on Zimbabwe's State Security Minister

The U.S. has imposed sanctions on State Security Minister, Owen Ncube, over what it says is credible information of his involvement in "gross violations of human rights," U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said. Human rights groups in Zimbabwe say they have recorded more than 20 cases of abductions of activists by state security agents since January but President Emmerson Mnangagwa's government denies any involvement.
