HARARE, Zimbabwe — U.S. and British diplomats were attacked Thursday as they tried to investigate political violence in Zimbabwe and a U.S. Embassy staffer was beaten, an embassy spokesman said.
The diplomats were held for several hours before being released, U.S. and British officials said.
The diplomats’ convoy was stopped at a roadblock just north of Harare, spokesman Paul Engelstad said.
