Third Zimbabwean farmer killed

A THIRD white farmer has been killed in Zimbabwe in the three-month-old land reform crisis.

Alan Dunn suffered severe head injuries and two broken arms in a confrontation with war veterans at his farm in the Beatrice area, 50 miles south of Harare, and died in hospital.

The Guardian reports that Mr Dunn was a member of an opposition party.

Supporters of Zimbabwes president Robert Mugabe occupied four other farms on Sunday (7 May) and invaded workers quarters of the Zimbabwe Fertiliser Company near Harare, beating up employees.
