HARARE (Reuters) - A Zimbabwe court Tuesday freed on bail 27 opposition supporters arrested by police last week on accustations of fomenting post-election violence.

Magistrate Francis Vhitorini granted $50 bail to each of the Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) members.

Violence erupted last week after President Emmerson Mnangagwa's ruling ZANU-PF party won a national election whose outcome the MDC disputed.
