Police fight demonstrators in Harare

The clash came after riot police officers blocked unemployed graduates who were on their way to deliver a petition against unemployment to Parliament.

Riot police first pounced on the peaceful protestors near Parliament building but the protestors later regrouped and attacked the police with stones forcing the riot police officers to retreat.
