Activists in Zimbabwe Ordered Re-Arrested

Eighteen members of Zimbabwean Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai's Movement for Democratic Change who had been released from prison as part of a power sharing agreement earlier this year with Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe have been ordered back to jail.

The MDC will meet this week to determine whether to continue to participate in the government as Mugabe will not now nor ever share power with anyone.

How people in Zimbabwe carry on I cannot imagine. But it is a testament to the strength of their spirit. A spirit that is seldom tested in this part of the world.
