Tourist fined for Mugabe insult
Zimbabwean court officials say a Swiss tourist has been fined $200 for insulting President Robert Mugabe.
Thomas Fischer, of Altnau, Switzerland, was convicted by a court in northwestern Zimbabwe.
Prosecutors alleged that, during a delay in border formalities, Fischer said Mugabe "knew how to screw people, especially foreigners".
Insulting Mugabe is an offence under sweeping security laws and prosecutions are common.
Earlier this year, a salesman spent two months in jail after satirical cartoons, depicting a naked, skeletal Mugabe, were found on his cellphone.
