Zimbabwe shuts down internet amid protest crackdown
Zimbabwe has ordered a shutdown of internet services while it violently cracks down on protests over fuel hikes.
Econet, the country's largest mobile operator, is one company reporting it’s been ordered to cut off services.
Access to popular services including WhatsApp, Facebook, and Twitter has been intermittent since protests began on Monday.
These services are often used to organise protests, as well as report on excessive violence by the government.
