Journalist Forced to Flee Zimbabwe

An independent Zimbabwean journalist who has asked to be called "Lee" in order to protect her safety was recently surrounded by 40 policemen. They illegally searched her house, took all the equipment, and arrested her mother — also a journalist — without charging her. Lee tells Madeleine Brand that she looks forward to returning if she's ever allowed back.
