Zimbabwe's former guerrillas back Mugabe

Zimbabwe's former guerrillas back Mugabe: "Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe's aides debated his next move on Friday after he suffered the worst setback of his long rule and liberation war veterans accused the opposition of provocation for claiming election victory.
The war veterans, a powerful force backing Mugabe, said victory claims by the Movement for Democratic Change, who won a parliamentary election and say they also defeated Mugabe in a presidential poll, were 'a provocation against us freedom fighters'."
