Tsvangirai calls for justice in Zimbabwe's political violence

MARONDERA, – Zimbabwe's main opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai says he wants to see justice in the wake of widespread political violence blamed on President Robert Mugabe's police, soldiers and party militants.

Morgan Tsvangirai was speaking Saturday to a cheering crowd in an area of northern Zimbabwe believed to have seen some of the worst of the violence that prompted him to withdraw from a June presidential runoff. Mugabe claimed victory in the runoff, but the vote was widely denounced as a sham.

Tsvangirai has called in the past for truth-and-reconciliation hearings.

Mugabe and Tsvangirai signed a power-sharing agreement last month, but remain divided over who controls which Cabinet posts.
