Zimbabwean army cuts roads to government offices

Zimbabwean soldiers and armoured vehicles blocked roads to the main government offices, parliament and the courts in central Harare, a Reuters witness said on Wednesday.

It comes after the military said it had seized power in a targeted assault on "criminals" around President Robert Mugabe.

Nearby, some Zimbabweans queued for cash outside banks while public taxis ferried commuters to work.
