June 26, 2009

zimbmineLobby group Human Rights Watch has accused Zimbabwe’s army of using forced labour, including children, to mine diamonds in the east of the country

Local villagers who do not co-operate with the military are beaten and tortured, the US-based group says.

Their report also details an alleged massacre of diamond diggers last year, after the disputed elections.

The police and army have turned this peaceful area into a nightmare of lawlessness and horrific violence.”

Witnesses say it involved a brutal military operation that saw some 200 people killed in three weeks.

It says army brigades are still in control forcing hundreds of children and adults endure forced labour for mining syndicates.
