Zimbabwe Vice President says Saturday's explosion was 'act of terrorism'

HARARE (Reuters) - Zimbabwean Vice President Constantino Chiwenga said on Sunday an explosion that narrowly missed harming the president after a rally on Saturday was “an act of terrorism” that would not stop an election due on July 30.

Chiwenga, whose wife was among those injured in the blast in the second city of Bulawayo, said those behind the incident were criminals who will be hunted down by the police and brought before the courts.
