Zimbabwe: Your questions

Victims of violence in Zimbabwe

Zimbabwe is going through one of the worst political and economic crises in its history.

The BBC is banned from reporting inside Zimbabwe but our correspondent Ian Pannell has just returned from an undercover trip to the country, ahead of next week's presidential run-off election. He'll be answering your questions about his experiences there.

During his assignment, Ian obtained documents suggesting that Zimbabwe's military is actively involved in running Robert Mugabe's re-election campaign.

President Mugabe has threatened to arrest opposition leaders for allegedly inciting political violence.

The opposition has in turn accused him of being responsible for the violence, which is reported to be spreading from the countryside to urban areas, including the capital, Harare.

The political crisis has also worsened the plight of the Zimbabwean people who are suffering economic hardships with ever increasing inflation and dwindling supplies of essential commodities.

Thank you for your questions. We are no longer looking for contributors.
