Authorities in Zimbabwe Dismiss Claims That Army Fired at Chamisa

The police and government have denied opposition Movement for Democratic Change's claims that gunshots were fired at Nelson Chamisa and his entourage when the opposition leader was presiding over a party-organised tree-planting event. Police spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi says the police used teargas to disperse the MDC activists, who he said were holding an illegal gathering.
