Zimbabwe's prime Minister, Morgan Tsvangirai, has been accused by state-run radio of trying to spark uprisings against President Robert Mugabe similar to those seen in Tunisia and Egypt.

The accusation came as an independent doctors' group said recent political violence has left at least three supporters of Mr Tsvangirai's MDC party in hospital with "grave injuries".

The stone-throwing and beatings started on Monday. On Wednesday, armed police sealed off the offices of the MDC-led Harare City Council as it was besieged by a pro-Mugabe mob.
