LUSAKA (AP) - In a new crackdown on dissent, Malawian police detained 11 churchmen and outlawed a pro-democracy rally yesterday, a church leader said.

Ten of the clergymen were released yesterday evening, and it was not known if they would face charges, said the Rev Aaron Longwe, moderator- elect of the Church of Central African Presbyterians. The fate of the 11th churchman was not known.
