    In Zimbabwe, doctors say they will continue to take strike action, despite the kidnapping of their union leader. Peter Magombeyi, who disappeared during a pay strike last week, has been found alive.

    Obert Masaraure, who runs a teachers’ union, told Al Jazeera he was also abducted three months ago, taken to a secluded area and beaten, for organising a teachers’ strike over pay.

    Activists say dozens of protesters have been abducted since January.

    Al Jazeera's Haru Mutasa reports from Harare.
