HARARE (Reuters) - The U.S. embassy in Zimbabwe urged American citizens to avoid central Harare on Thursday because of protests and reports of gunshots, the embassy said in a statement on its website.

“As the political situation in Zimbabwe remains uncertain, you should remain safely at home or in your accommodations as much as possible,” the statement read.
