Zimbabwe’s military has placed President Robert Mugabe under house arrest in the capital, Harare

Zimbabwe's military has placed President Robert Mugabe under house arrest in the capital, Harare, South African President Jacob Zuma says.
Mr. Mugabe told Mr. Zuma in a phone call that he was fine, the South African leader's office said.
Troops are patrolling the capital, Harare, after they seized state TV and said they were targeting "criminals".
The move may be a bid to replace Mr. Mugabe with his sacked Deputy, Emmerson Mnangagwa, BBC correspondents say.
Mr. Mnangagwa's dismissal last week left Mr. Mugabe's wife Grace as the President's likely successor.
