The Latest: Zimbabwe blast ‘terrorism,’ vice president says

One of Zimbabwe’s vice presidents is calling Saturday’s explosion at a presidential campaign rally “terrorism” and says any candidate who feels “afraid and scared” will receive security.

Vice President Constantino Chiwenga is telling a rally outside the capital that the blast that went off in a VIP tent seconds after President Emmerson Mnangagwa stepped into it will not stop the historic July 30 election.

The president was unscathed. Chiwenga was lightly bruised in the blast.

Police say an investigation continues.
