Policeman shot on Zimbabwe farm


A POLICEMAN has been shot dead on a white farm in Zimbabwe during a struggle with black squatters.

The death on a farm 70km from the capital Harare is the first since government supporters began invading white-owned farms two months ago.

Some observers believe the incident could give president Robert Mugabe an excuse to declare a state of emergency, reportsThe Independent.
