AKIPRESS.COM - Zimbabwean President Emmerson Mnangagwa has broken off a trip to Europe after violent protests in his home country.
Mr Mnangagwa had been due to attend the Davos economic summit where he was expected to seek investment for Zimbabwe.
Ministers say the opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) is using sharp fuel price increases as a pretext for violence.
But the MDC accuses the authorities of a brutal crackdown.
The Zimbabwe Human Rights NGO forum says at least 12 people were killed and 78 treated for gunshot injuries.
Mnangagwa was scheduled to tour Russia, Belarus, Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan and attend the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, later this month. He's been to Belarus, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan and Russia.
