Zimbabwe soldiers, armoured vehicles seal road access to government offices

HARARE (Reuters) - Zimbabwean soldiers and armoured vehicles blocked roads to the main government offices, parliament and the courts in central Harare, a Reuters witness said on Wednesday, after the military said it had seized power in a targeted assault on “criminals” around President Robert Mugabe.
