Zimbabwe move after priest warns

TROOPS of the notorious North Korean-trained Fifth Brigade in Zimbabwe are being withdrawn from Matebeleland province after allegations of atrocities against civilians.

The 5,000 strong brigade, blamed by Church leaders for a wave of terrorism, are being pulled back to their barracks and replaced by British-trained soldiers of other units.

The withdrawal of the troops, mostly supporters of Mr Robert Mugabe, the Prime Minister, was expected to case tensions in the province which borders South Africa and Botswana.

Allegations were made last week by a Catholic priest, Fr Hebron Wilson, a parish priest in Bulawayo, who said he had collected evidence of many atrocities.
