Equatorial Guinea/Zimbabwe: Zim adds intl terrorism charges

The 70 alleged mercenaries have been charged with "conspiring to commit international terrorism".
Defence lawyer Jonathan Samkange said the police were charging the men with "contravening a UN (United Nations) resolution 1373 (2001) and UN resolution 1456 (2003)".

...Samkange has said the 70 cannot be charged for international terrorism because it falls outside the scope of Zimbabwean laws. (link)
