Licence to Kill: Cops Murder Suspects in Cold Blood

Trigger-happy police have gunned down two men in Harare under unclear circumstances, it has been learnt.
ZRP spokesperson Charity Charamba confirmed the killings and claimed the dead were robbers fleing the scene of a heist in Norton.
There was no independent confirmation of the police claims that the murdered men were robbers.
Charamba said the suspects had robbed a Norton company of $26 000 and were trying to escape in a Toyota Spacio vehicle when they were butchered.
The murders follow a pattern of extra-judicial killings by the Zimbabwean police in which the victims are routinely accused of being robbers.
Human rights campaigners condemned the police actions.
