Archbishop: Zimbabwe's President Should Be Removed and Tried

LONDON (AP) - A senior Anglican cleric says Zimbabwean leader
Robert Mugabe should be removed from power and tried for "crimes
against humanity."

Zimbabwe's economy has collapsed, hundreds have died of cholera,
at least a quarter of the population has fled the country and many
of those who remain are surviving on roots and leaves.

Elections held last March were widely denounced after murderous
attacks on the opposition.

Archbishop of York John Sentamu says, "Mugabe and his henchmen
must now take their rightful place in The Hague and answer for
their actions."

Sentamu is an outspoken critic of Mugabe. Last year he cut his white collar to pieces on national TV, saying he would not wear one again until Mugabe was out of power.
