Mugabe arrives for food summit

June 02, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe, accused by domestic critics of running down agriculture and causing food shortages, flew into Rome for a global food summit that will begin Tuesday.

Mugabe, facing a June 27 presidential runoff against opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai, did not speak to reporters upon his arrival.

About 60 heads of state and government are expected to discuss global problems of poverty and malnutrition caused by steep rises in food prices.
