HARARE - A regional bid to resolve Zimbabwe's unity government deadlock got under way in Harare yesterday as opposition leaders arrived for talks with President Robert Mugabe and southern African mediators.

MDC leader Morgan Tsvangirai and the head of a smaller opposition group, Arthur Mutambara, were set to hold talks with Mugabe mediated by southern African leaders.

"Now is the time for finding common ground among Zimbabweans. Now is the time for flexibility, compromise and pragmatism," Mutambara told reporters. - Sapa-AFP
