Murder in the Zambezi

An incomprehensible act of brutality was about to unfold at the Hunyani crash site…


An elderly woman pleaded with them to spare the children. Her plea didn’t help … the terrorists opened fire at point-blank range on the shocked, injured, and defenceless group. Some tried to run, but to no avail; they were gunned down in cold blood.
