Zimbabweans are going to the polls to decide on the draft of a new constitution. But even as the country geared up for the referendum, seven members of Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai's Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) party were assaulted.

They were putting up posters in Harare's oldest township of Mbare, urging voters to approve the proposed constitution in Saturday's vote.
