Zimbabwe's first lady Grace Mugabe returned home from South Africa early Sunday, state media reported, pursued by demands she face prosecution over an alleged assault of a 20-year-old model in an upmarket Johannesburg hotel room. Police had placed border posts on "red alert" to prevent her from leaving but South Africa's foreign minister said she had granted diplomatic immunity to the wife of Zimbabwe's 93-year-old President Robert Mugabe. A Reuters source confirmed a Zimbabwean state media report that the president and first lady arrived in Harare aboard an Air Zimbabwe plane in the early hours of Sunday.Compounding the awkward diplomatic situation, commercial flights between Zimbabwe and South Africa were grounded Friday and Saturday, affecting both national carriers, after unexpected checks for operating permits.
