津巴布韦反对派领导人在美国坠机身亡 Zimbabwe Opposition Leader Killed in Helicopter Crash

 美国当局正在调查津巴布韦反对派高级领导人贝尼特在直升机坠毁中身亡的事件。一同遇难的还有贝尼特的妻子以及其他三人。

警方说,直升机星期三晚上在新墨西哥州偏远山区坠毁,离科罗拉多州州界不远。

直升机坠毁中有一人受伤,得以逃生,并打了求救电话。

目前还不清楚,贝尼特为什么会在新墨西哥州。

60岁的贝尼特是积极帮助穷人的活动人士,长期以来坚决反对穆加贝总统。穆加贝去年年底被迫辞职。

U.S. authorities are investigating a helicopter crash which killed Senior Zimbabwe opposition leader Roy Bennett, his wife and three others.

Police say the aircraft went down Wednesday night, in a remote mountainous area in the state of New Mexico, close to the border with Colorado.

Another passenger who was injured in the crash managed to get away and call for help.

It is unclear what Bennett was doing in New Mexico.

The 60 year-old Bennett was an activist for causes helping the poor and a fierce opponent of longtime president Robert Mugabe, who was forced to resign late last year.
