Police in Zimbabwe's capital Monday fired tear gas and water cannons in an attempt to quell rioting by taxi and minibus drivers protesting what they describe as police harassment.The drivers blocked roads leading into the center of Harare, forcing many people to walk up to 6 miles (10 kilometers) to get to work. Rioters threw stones at police and vehicles, and some children on their way to school were caught up in the chaos.Such acts of defiance and clashes with the police are rare in Zimbabwe, although the government deployed the army against 1998 riots over soaring food prices.
