Zimbabwe will hold elections by June 29 to end a shaky unity government formed four years ago between President Robert Mugabe and his rival Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai, state media reported yesterday.
“It is imperative to have the elections by June 29 because we will no longer have a parliament by then and a country cannot run without a parliament,” The Herald newspaper quoted Justice Minister Patrick Chinamasa as saying.

Residents of a South Korean island closest to the tense sea border with North Korea have shrugged off a warning from Pyongyang, urging them to flee ahead of "thunderous attacks", an official said Sunday.
The North's official website, Uriminzokkiri, told residents of five islands south of the border to leave, warning of "devastating consequences" if recent cross-border tension escalates into a full-scale conflict.
