Britain strips Mugabe of his knighthood
The action was taken as a "mark of revulsion" against Mugabe's regime.
London: Britain has stripped Zimbabwean leader Robert Mugabe of a knighthood awarded by Queen Elizabeth II in 1994, the Foreign Office said on Wednesday.
A spokesman said the action was taken as a "mark of revulsion" against the "abuse of human rights and abject disregard for democracy" in Zimbabwe under Mugabe's regime.
The withdrawal of the knighthood, a rare event, was recommended by Foreign Secretary David Miliband and approved by the queen.
