UK says Zimbabwe soldiers must return to barracks

HARARE (Reuters) - Britain’s ambassador to Harare has met Zimbabwean ministers and made clear that the army should be removed from the streets of the capital, the British embassy said on Thursday.

“Zimbabwe is experiencing a period of heightened tension,” a statement said. “All political leaders have a responsibility to ensure they do not raise tensions or issue statements that make violence more likely.”
