Zimbabwe prime minister's party fears new attacks

Zimbabwe prime minister's party fears new attacks

The party of Zimbabwe's premier says it fears his temporary withdrawal from the unity government has unleashed new violence from the president's militants.
Movement for Democratic Change spokesman Nelson Chamisa says a security official at the party's headquarters was beaten on the way to work Tuesday by four armed men. Chamisa says the men wanted to arrest her but fled when a crowd gathered.
The party also has received reports of attacks from rural areas and it cites a police raid on a house used by Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai's supporters.
Ephraim Masawi, a spokesman for President Robert Mugabe's party, denies the allegations.
Tsvangirai withdrew temporarily from the coalition Oct. 16, accusing Mugabe's party of human rights violations.
