Zimbabwe Forces Accused of ‘Systematic Torture’ after Protests over Fuel Prices

Zimbabwe forces have engaged in “systematic torture” of protesters, the Zimbabwe Human Rights Commission has found. The torture, mostly consisting of “indiscriminate and severe beatings,” follows several days of looting, fires and street barricades by protesters angry over high fuel prices. The country has been mired in violent protests after President Emmerson Mnangagwa more than doubled fuel prices earlier this month. At least 12 people have been reported killed, while hundreds have been arrested and jailed.
