Zimbabwe: Fear for safety of farming communities and opposition political activists in rural areas
Opposition activists and supporters, real or perceived, are being intimidated and attacked, and at least six have been killed, in rural areas by so-called "war veterans" and other supporters of the ruling party, Zimbabwe African National Union - Patriotic Front (ZANU-PF). Far from condemning these abuses, which are continuing with the apparent complicity or acquiescence of the authorities, President Mugabe has repeatedly made statements supporting those responsible.
