Zimbabwe police play down terror suspicions

Published July 8, 2010

HARARE, Zimbabwe – Zimbabwe's national police spokesman says the media created reports of terror links to two Pakistani men arrested crossing into World Cup host South Africa from Zimbabwe.

The two men appeared in court Tuesday on immigration charges, and are to come to court again July 22.

Police spokesman Wayne Bvudzijena said Wednesday, "The charge of terrorism was a media creation. We are still to get their identity from the Pakistani police."

He said the police were not able to process charges of terrorism until investigations are finalized.
