Zimbabweans find refuge in S Africa embassy

As Morgan Tsvangirai, the leader of the opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC), finds refuge in the Dutch embassy in Zimbabwe, about 200 Zimbabweans have taken refuge at the South African Embassy in Harare.

They say they are victims of persecution by supporters of Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe because they voted for the opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) in the first round of the presidential vote.
