Zimbabwean minister dies in car crash

Police in Zimbabwe say that the minister for youth and employment, Border Gezi, has been killed in a car crash.

Mr Gezi was appointed to the cabinet after last year's elections.

He had recently been put in charge of supervising efforts to restructure the party following the heavy setback suffered last year when it only narrowly defeated the opposition Movement for Democratic Change. The minister's driver was also killed in the accident, which occurred on the Harare-Masvingo road.
