In Zimbabwe, a military crackdown against opposition activists continued over the weekend, following last week’s historic presidential elections. Longtime leader Robert Mugabe’s former vice president, Emmerson Mnangagwa, was declared the winner of Monday’s election, although opposition parties have rejected the outcome, questioning the vote count. Human rights groups now say dozens of opposition activists have been abducted, attacked or raped by unidentified men during a wave of post-election repression. The army has also been deployed to the streets of the capital Harare.
