Zimbabwe Update #3

Just a quick note. Morgan Tsvangirai has declared that he is pulling out of the presidential election. The announcement came the day after one of his party's (DMC) rallies was reportedly broken up by a pro-Mugabe youth militia. The full Reuter's story is here. It's disappointing, but I can't say I blame them for the decision. The violence would only have escalated in the next week culminating on election day, when Tsvangirai supporters would most likely have been massacred. And the world sits idly by.
