Zimbabwe economy: Doctors strike, reject government pay rise

Zimbabwean health services in disarray as doctors demand US dollar salaries, refuse to resume work over poor pay.

    Doctors in Zimbabwe are continuing to strike, defying a government order to return to work.

    They have rejected a 60-percent pay rise, saying it is not enough to keep up with soaring prices.

    But with the economy in free fall, patients needing treatment are also suffering.
