Zimbabwe Opposition Leader Killed in Helicopter Crash
U.S. authorities are investigating a helicopter crash which killed Senior Zimbabwe opposition leader Roy Bennett, his wife and three others.
Police say the aircraft went down Wednesday night, in a remote mountainous area in the state of New Mexico, close to the border with Colorado.
Another passenger who was injured in the crash managed to get away and call for help.
It is unclear what Bennett was doing in New Mexico.
The 60 year-old Bennett was an activist for causes helping the poor and a fierce opponent of longtime president Robert Mugabe, who was forced to resign late last year.
Tillerson Hopes to Visit New Embassy in London
U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson says he hopes to visit the new U.S. embassy in London, a week after President Donald Trump refused to attend its opening.
Tillerson will be in London Sunday at the start of an eight day trip across Europe. But a State Department spokeswoman said no formal ribbon-cutting had been planned for Tillerson's visit.
Tillerson also plans to meet with British leaders and to discuss issues of mutual concern around the world.
Last Friday, Trump cancelled a visit to London in February, saying he did not want to lend his support to a "bad deal" on the embassy relocation, which he incorrectly claimed had been agreed by the Obama administration. The decision to sell the old embassy was actually taken during the George W. Bush administration and was reportedly driven by security concerns.
