Zimbabwe Finance Minister Tendai Biti said the car wreck that injured Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai and killed his wife might have been avoided had Tsvangirai been outfitted with the sort of motorcade that accompanies President Robert Mugabe. The crash Friday night involved a head-on collision with a truck transporting AIDS medicine provided by the U.S., according to a U.S. Embassy official. Tsvangirai has all but ruled out the possibility of foul play, but the Movement for Democratic Change opposition party with which he is affiliated has called for an investigation.
