Zimbabwe warns PA

(First Edition)

HARARE (Reuter) - Zimbabwe has warned the Pan-Africanist Congress, whose armed wing claimed responsibility for armed attacks on South African whites, to stop issuing statements on violence from its territory.

A man who said he was a senior commander of the Azanian People's Liberation Army phoning from Harare told South African radio two weeks ago that his men were responsible for an attack in the Eastern Cape.

'We do not want Zimbabwe soil to be used for hostile activities against South Africa or any other country,' the Zimbabwe Foreign Minister, Nathan Shamuyarira, said.
