Zimbabwe unity 'peace talks'


Southern African Development Community mediators are in last ditch talks to save Zimbabwe's power sharing deal.

They are meeting President Robert Mugabe and Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai in an attempt to get the unity government working again.

Mr Tsvangirai's Movement for Democratic change withdrew from cabinet meetings two weeks ago.

The tensions come amid rising concern about the return of political violence against the MDC.

Andrew Harding reports from Zimbabwe.
