The body of former Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe, who died last week in Singapore, was sent back to Harare on Wednesday on a direct flight.

Escorted by the police, a car from a funeral home in the city-state moved the lifeless body of the former African leader to Changi Airport, where a chartered plane waited after having flown in with Zimbabwean Vice President Kembo Mohadi on Monday. EFE-EPA
