UN fury at Zimbabwe rights snub

Zimbabweans fear torture and human rights violations will continue unchecked.

    The UN's top torture investigator has called for action against Zimbabwe after he was detained on his arrival at Harare airport and then deported.

    Manfred Nowak had been invited by Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai, to investigate reports of rising violence and intimidation.

    As Al Jazeera's Haru Mutasa reports from Harare, many Zimbabweans are worried that human rights violations and arbitrary arrests will continue.
