    Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe has drawn applause and anger for a speech denouncing the UK's Tony Blair and US President George Bush at a UN event.
    Mr Mugabe described the leaders as "unholy men" at the meeting in Rome.

    The European Commission responded by saying the tirade justified a travel ban that the European Union imposed on the Zimbabwean leader.

    The US accuses Mr Mugabe of starving his people and has said his presence at the food summit is "disheartening"....

    ...Some delegates to the Rome meeting applauded Mr Mugabe's condemnation of the Western leaders on several occasions during his speech and then at the end....

    ...Though officially banned from travelling to EU countries, Mr Mugabe is allowed to visit them when on UN business....

    ...Must we allow these men, the two unholy men of our millennium, who in the same way as Hitler and Mussolini formed [an] unholy alliance, form an alliance to attack an innocent country?" asked Mr Mugabe, apparently referring to Iraq.
