A statement issued April 29 by a group of UN human rights activists says there is reliable evidence that security forces, paramilitary groups and gangs have attacked the homes of Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) supporters, and of workers with the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission, in areas where the MDC received more votes than the ruling ZANU-PF party, following last month’s presidential elections. The UN experts report that at least 351 people hospitalized, nearly 300 homes destroyed through politically motivated arson, 15 women have been abducted, and several people murdered.
