Harare sets up new radio station

Zimbabwe is setting up a new radio station to counter what it calls Western propaganda against President Robert Mugabe.

"We are under siege and being bombarded by the Western media broadcasting to our people," Information Minister Sikhanyiso Ndlovu said.

The short wave station will become the fifth state-run radio station in the state and will cost Z$8.9bn ($39.6m).

The station is being partly funded by the Iranian government.
