Zimbabwe police beat miners' wives protesting over unpaid wages

Baton-wielding Zimbabwean police beat up more than 100 women protesting against the non-payment of their husbands' wages by the country's largest coal miner last week, a rights group said Monday. The Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights (ZLHR) said the police assaulted the women for staging a protest march after their husbands, who are employed by Hwange Colliery Company in western Zimbabwe, went for several months without pay. One of the women was so badly injured she is said to be fighting for her life.
