Mugabe arrests an estimated 30,000

Although this has not received much (actually to my knowledge, any coverage) in the mainstream American press, Robert Mugabe, continues to move Zimbabwe further into starvation and now appears to be creating a new system of apartheid.

In a recent 3 week crackdown on what Mugabe describes as illegal homes and businesses but most see as a response to opposition resulting from Mugabe's latest rigged election up to 30,000 people are believed to have been arrested. The UN Human Rights commission also estimates that this has resulted in 200,000 people being made homeless.
