Zimbabwe : Thousands celebrate end of Mugabe era

Thousands celebrate end of Mugabe era
Jubilant scenes are unfolding on the streets of Zimbabwe's capital Harare, as protests demanding the resignation of President Robert Mugabe have turned to a celebration of the army's role in ending his grip on power.

BBC correspondents say protesters are hugging soldiers in the crowd and cheering for them.
One man told the BBC the day was "about a new beginning".

The rally is supported by the army and members of the ruling Zanu-PF party.

War veterans - who until last year were loyal to the president - are also saying Mr Mugabe should quit.
