POLICE yesterday arrested at least 10 people during the Zimbabwe cricket team's high-profile second Test match against New Zealand at Bulawayo's Queens Sports Club as spectators sang the national anthem and waved flags in protest against the political and economic situation in the country.

There were anti-government protests inside and outside the ground, which saw prominent human rights activist Jenni Williams being arrested during the first session of the day.

Williams was denied entry into the ground in the morning and was bundled into a police truck.
