Southern African leaders to meet on Zimbabwe crisis

Southern African regional leaders meet Thursday in the Mozambican capital Maputo for a summit aimed at reviving the troubled power-sharing agreement in Zimbabwe, deadlocked for nearly three weeks.

The meeting will bring together the members of Zimbabwe's stalled unity government -- President Robert Mugabe, Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai and deputy premier Arthur Mutambara.

They will hold talks with leaders from the Democratic Republic of Congo, Mozambique, South Africa, Swaziland and Zambia.

Long-time rivals Mugabe and Tsvangirai agreed to form a unity government in February in the wake of deadly violence that followed disputed elections last year.

The government plunged into another crisis last month after Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai's MDC party boycotted President Robert Mugabe's ZANU-PF in a dispute over the implementation of their power-sharing deal after a disputed election.
