Morgan Tsvangirai, Zimbabwe's veteran opposition leader, has died at 65
Morgan Tsvangirai, Zimbabwe's longtime opposition leader and political rival of former Prime Minister Robert Mugabe, has died at 65.
His death was confirmed to Reuters by a member of his Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) party.
Earlier this month, it was reported he was "critically ill" in hospital in South Africa. He had reportedly been suffering from colon cancer.
MDC Vice President Elias Mudzuri tweeted the party had "lost our icon and fighter for democracy."
Tsvangirai founded the MDC in 2000, and remained a key opposition figure against Robert Mugabe's long hold on power.
