Gunfire broke out in the centre of the Zimbabwean capital when rampaging, unpaid soldiers attacked money changers and clashed with police.

Associated Press reporters saw running skirmishes between unarmed soldiers and police wielding guns and riot batons yesterday. This was the second time in a week that soldiers have attacked money changers and stolen their cash in frustration after they have been unable to get their wages at banks. Hundreds of people gathered, some throwing stones.
