Church service for Zimbabwe premier's wife

Church service for Zimbabwe premier's wife

A small church service is under way in Zimbabwe for the wife of Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai, who was killed in a car crash last week.
Susan Tsvangirai's body is to be taken to a stadium later Tuesday for a memorial service. The state-run Herald newspaper reports that President Robert Mugabe is to attend the church service, and that the government is helping pay the funeral costs.
Zimbabwe's long history of political violence blamed on Mugabe's forces fueled speculation that Friday's crash, in which the prime minister was slightly injured, was not an accident. Tsvangirai tried to quell the rumors Monday, saying at a news conference there was "no foul play" in the crash.
