Britain strips Mugabe of knighthood

LONDON (Reuters) - Britain’s Queen Elizabeth has stripped Zimbabwe’s President Robert Mugabe of an honorary knighthood awarded in 1994, the foreign ministry said on Wednesday.

“This action has been taken as a mark of revulsion at the abuse of human rights and abject disregard for the democratic process in Zimbabwe over which President Mugabe has presided,” a foreign ministry spokesman said.
