Coup or no coup, Mugabe staying home for now

The UK's Foreign Office has advised tourists in Harare, Zimbabwe to stay indoors after the army took control of the country.
Official military reports there say president Robert Mugabe and his family are safe and this is 'not a military takeover of government'.
"Due to the uncertain political situation in Harare, including reports of unusual military activity, we recommend British nationals currently in Harare to remain safely at home or in their accommodation until the situation becomes clearer," the FCO said.
 
"You should avoid political activity, or activities that could be considered political, including political discussions in public places and criticism of the president.
 
"You should avoid all demonstrations and rallies. The authorities have sometimes used force to suppress demonstrations."
