An inquiry has found that Zimbabwe’s military used “unjustifiable” force against opposition protesters in the wake of this year’s presidential election.
Six people were killed after troops intervened to curb protests in the capital, Harare, on August 1.
The independent commission said the army acted inappropriately when it fired on fleeing demonstrators.
But it blamed some opposition figures for inciting the violence.
The army and police clashed with demonstrators who took to the streets amid allegations that the ruling Zanu-PF party had rigged the July 30 vote.
“The commission’s finding is that the deaths of those six people arose from the action of the military and the police.
The seven-member commission, which was set up by President Emmerson Mnangagwa following his narrow victory, found the deployment of the military to have been legal.
It also accused the opposition MDC Alliance of inflaming tension, citing speeches from some of its leaders.
