‘Beaten and shot by Zimbabwe’s police’

Zimbabwe’s security forces have been accused of using systematic torture to crack down on protesters.

Unrest broke out more than a week ago following a sharp rise in fuel prices.

A government spokesman defended the crackdown, telling the BBC: “When things get out of hand, a bit of firmness is needed.”

Burials have been held for some of the people killed and some of the injured are receiving treatment for gunshot wounds in hospitals.
