Zimbabwe’s opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai has died in South Africa, a senior official in his MDC party has said.
Mr Tsvangirai, 65, a former prime minister, had apparently been suffering from colon cancer.
Mr Tsvangirai’s career was marked by a long political struggle against former President Robert Mugabe.
He had been beaten and imprisoned numerous times.
Mr Tsvangirai founded the MDC (Movement for Democratic Change) in 2000, repeatedly challenging Mr Mugabe during the ex-president’s long grip on power.
