Zimbabwe man jailed with intestines hanging out

HARARE (Reuters) - A Zimbabwean man awaiting trial for stealing motor cycles has been locked up in remand prison for months with his intestines hanging out after being shot in a police raid.

The accused appeared in court for a bail application this week, hobbling in pain and holding his protruding intestines in a plastic bag, local media reported on Wednesday.

A shocked judge ordered prison authorities to immediately take the man to hospital. The man told the court he had failed to get medical help since his arrest in September.

A prison spokesman said the man had been taken back to hospital at least twice but there was no doctor on those occasions, and he was receiving painkillers.Reuters
