HARARE, ZIMBABWE (AP) - Zimbabwean police have arrested five American doctors working in the capital and charged them with operating without proper licenses, their lawyer said Saturday.

Lawyer Jonathan Samukange said the five Americans were arrested late Friday along with a Zimbabwean doctor.

He said the doctors are accused of practicing medicine in Zimbabwe without a proper license and of running a pharmacy without a pharmacist’s supervision or a pharmacist’s license. But he said they have the proper licenses and were only supervising a pharmacy that mainly gave out AIDS medications. He said they are expected to appear in court on Monday.

He said they are working for a church-related aid group but did not specify which one.
