Police in Zimbabwe have dispersed demonstrators calling for the release of a prominent human rights lawyer, who was arrested last week on allegations of obstructing justice.

Mtetwa denies any wrongdoing and says she merely asked police officers to show her a search warrant during a raid on Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai's staff offices in Harare.

Critics say the detention of Beatrice Mtetwa, who is due to reappear in court on Monday, is politically motivated.
