Zimbabwe's Tsvangirai and Mujuru in anti-Mugabe alliance

Long-time Mugabe critic Morgan Tsvangirai and former Vice-President Joice Mujuru say they will work together in next year's election.

However, it is not yet clear which of them will be the presidential candidate.

Mr Mugabe, 93, has been in power since independence from Britain in 1980 and has said he will seek re-election.

"This is just the beginning of the building blocks towards establishing a broad alliance to confront Zanu-PF between now and the next election," Mr Tsvangirai told journalists.

Mr Mugabe has previously said he would not be losing any sleep over the proposed coalition.
