Zimbabwe doctors protest over ailing health system

AP/Yahoo News, November 18, 2008
Truckloads of riot police were deployed outside a hospital to prevent scores of doctors and nurses from marching in protest at the state of Zimbabwe's collapsing health system. Zimbabwe's health system has collapsed under the weight of the world's highest inflation rate, with many hospitals unable to provide even basic medicines. The protesters were also demanding that the government review their salaries which have failed to keep pace with the inflation.
