Injured journalist out on bail

authorities have released New York Times reporter Barry Bearak, but he must remain in country for now. He was jailed for covering the Zimbabwe election without government permission.

Then there's the injury he suffered in an alleged "fall" from his curiously tall bunk bed:

Under the terms of his bail, Mr. Bearak was released to a clinic; he suffered some injuries as the result of a fall from the concrete bunk in his cell to the concrete floor, seven feet below.

In Mugabe's Zimbabwe, you either get behind the fist or get in front of it.
