Soldiers On The Streets Of Harare, Shots Fired As Situation Escalates Quickly

Soldiers have appeared in armoured personnel careers (APC)s in the central business district of Harare to disperse crowds of opposition supporters who are protesting against the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (Zec). The opposition is claiming that the results released by Zec are fraudulent and have been manipulated. According to reports, riot police have left the situation to the army who are firing their guns. State-owned radio Star FM has claimed that the military is actually using live ammunition to disperse the crowds. Other reports say that rubber bullets were used by the police to the soldiers coming in. Another state-owned radio station Capitalk FM in a news bulletin said that one person has been confirmed dead at Fourth Street. Near that location, a Zanu-PF was also set on fire.
