Zimbabwe PM Tsvangirai's wife killed in 'accident'

"a statement released by MDC leaders based in South Africa made clear that they believe Mr Tsvangirai could have been the victim of an assassination plot.

They pointed out that several of Mugabe's enemies have died in suspicious road accidents. It read: 'We suspect that this is not a genuine accident.""

The wife of Zimbabwe's prime minister Morgan Tsvangirai died in a horrific car crash yesterday in which he was also injured.

Susan Tsvangirai was travelling with her husband south of the capital Harare when the accident occurred, according to sources within Mr Tsvangirai's party, the Movement for Democratic Change.

The crash immediately raised fears that Mr Tsvangirai had been the target of an assassination attempt.

Mr Tsvangirai and his wife had been travelling to a weekend rally in his home region of Buhera, south of Harare, when their vehicle collided with a haulage lorry near the town of Beatrice.

The crash comes just three weeks after 56-year-old Mr Tsvangirai was sworn in as prime minister in a government power-sharing deal with president Robert Mugabe's Zanu-PF party.
