Zimbabwe accused of violent crackdown on protests

Rights groups say the security forces have responded to demonstrators with 'unprecedented use of excessive force'.

    Rights groups are warning that the crisis in Zimbabwe could engulf the whole region if it is not urgently addressed.

    Troops are also allegedly invading people's homes.
