Businesses and schools are shut down and public transport vehicles are grounded in most of the country despite government assurances that security would be provided.

The government over the weekend announced a price of $3.11 per litre for diesel, and $3.33 per liter for gasoline. That means gasoline in Zimbabwe is now the most expensive in the world, based on data from GlobalPetrolPrices.com.

The site says Hong Kong had the highest price for a liter of gasoline on Jan. 7: $2.04.Five people were killed in Monday's unrest during which security forces opened fire on crowds, according to the Zimbabwe Association of Doctors for Human Rights.
