Zimbabwe is in the midst of intense unrest, as protests have broken out against president Robert Mugabe in recent weeks. People who have fled the country in fear of their lives describe witnessing police brutality, severe hunger, and one calls it a war zone. An activist says people are now ‘willing to sacrifice their lives’ for electoral reform. Footage shows demonstrations against the 92-year-old president – who has been in power since Zimbabwe’s independence in 1980 – and police using water cannons and teargas on protesters.
