    The United States Government condemns the brutal and unwarranted actions of the Government of Zimbabwe March 11 in attacking its citizens peacefully gathered to exercise their legitimate democratic rights at a prayer meeting in the Harare suburb of Highfield.

    The Embassy reports that one person was killed, a number were injured, and over 100 were arrested. Police have refused to inform lawyers of the whereabouts of those arrested, including Movement for Democratic Change leaders Morgan Tsvangirai and Arthur Mutambara; and Lovemore Madhuku, head of the National Constitutional Assembly.

    We hold President Robert Mugabe and the Government of Zimbabwe accountable for the government's actions today, and for the safety and well-being of those in custody. We call for the immediate release of those detained, and for the provision of medical treatment for those injured.

    Sean McCormack
