Bush orders expanded U.S. sanctions on Zimbabwe
Although preliminary talks began on Tuesday between Mugabe and Tsvangirai, US president Bush on Friday signed an order expanding U.S. sanctions against the "illegitimate" Zimbabwe government of President Robert Mugabe.

"This action is a direct result of the Mugabe regime's continued politically-motivated violence," Bush said in a statement.

Mugabe won a landslide victory last month in a vote condemned by Western nations and boycotted by opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai, who cited government-sponsored violence and intimidation.
