Protesters are gathering in Zimbabwe’s capital Harare to demand the resignation of President Robert Mugabe. The rally is supported by the military which staged a takeover on Wednesday.
Regional branches of the ruling Zanu-PF party as well as war veterans – who until last year were loyal to the president – are also saying Mr Mugabe should quit.
Mr Mugabe, 93, had been under house arrest for days, but on Friday he made his first public appearance.
He attended a university graduation ceremony in the capital.
