The wife of Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe attacked a photographer for the Times of London who caught her leaving a posh Hong Kong hotel, the newspaper reports. Grace Mugabe ordered her bodyguard to seize the shutterbug’s camera—and then joined in the fracas. The photographer suffered nine cuts, abrasions and bruises to the face caused by the diamond-encrusted rings Mugabe was wearing.
“She was standing there in a mad rage, screaming something at me, and just kept lining up the punches, all into my face,” said the photog. “I thought, how can a first lady be doing this?”
