Zimbabwe Intensifies Crackdown After Journalist's Arrest

Zimbabwean police have launched a hunt for opposition and union activists, appealing for information on the whereabouts of 14 well-known government critics. This follows the arrest of opposition politician Jacob Ngarivhume and journalist Hopewell Chin'ono, charged with incitement to commit public violence and denied bail by a magistrates court. Meanwhile, the U.S. government has summoned Zimbabwean ambassador to that country, Innocent Mutembwa following Zanu-PF acting spokesperson, Patrick Chinamasa's threats to expel U.S. ambassador to Zimbabwe, Brian Nichols.
