Riot erupts in Zimbabwe over increase in fuel price

Minibusses heading to the city center were barred from entering into the other city as burning tyres and stones were used to block the main routes into town while some schools were turning away pupils fearing for their safety.

Shops closed in downtown Harare as riot police patrolled the streets and a military helicopter flew over the capital.

President Emmerson Mnangagwa on Saturday night announced a more than a 100-percent rise in the price of petrol and diesel in a move he said would end fuel shortages.
