Zimbabwe's opposition says it is facing escalating violence as the country's June 27th presidential run-off election approaches.
A spokesman for the opposition Movement for Democratic Change, Nelson Chamisa says the bodies of four opposition activists were found near Harare Thursday, two days after they were abducted.
Amnesty International said Thursday that 12 bodies had been found
across the country recently and that most of the victims showed signs
of torture. The London-based human rights group said the victims
appeared to have been abducted by supporters of the ruling ZANU-PF
party. It also said it has received information that soldiers are
threatening villagers and instructing them to vote for President Robert
The MDC says about 70 of its supporters have been killed in what it
describes as a campaign of violence and intimidation before the poll.
The president and ruling party blame the MDC for the violence.
