At least six Zimbabwe activists were abducted and beaten up Friday ahead of a planned protest in Harare against President Robert Mugabe's government, a protest leader told AFP.
Riot police were on patrol in the capital to prevent crowds gathering after civil action groups vowed to hold the first anti-government protest in several weeks.
