Zimbabwe police battled anti-government protesters on Friday with batons, teargas and water cannons, despite a court order that police should not interfere with the demonstration in the capital.
The demonstration brought together at least 18 opposition parties and civic organisations and was quickly dispersed by police.
The protest marks the first time that Zimbabwe’s fractured opposition has joined in a single action to confront President Robert Mugabe’s government since 2007. Dubbed the “mega demonstration,” the protest was to include veteran opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai and Mugabe’s former deputy, Joice Mujuru, according to organisers.
