Zimbabwe Journalist and Opposition Leader Released on Bail

Zimbabwe's High Court has granted bail to a prominent investigative journalist and an opposition leader, over a month after they were arrested for allegedly inciting violence. Freelance journalist Hopewell Chin'ono and Jacob Ngarivhume, a leader of a fringe opposition party, were arrested ahead of protests against corruption that had been pencilled in for July 31.
