UNITED STATES: Specially trained dogs were deployed to stop a joyrider in a low-octane police chase in Denver after the theft of a John Deere tractor on Saturday.
The police chase lasted around 30 minutes as the tractor veered onto the pavement and cruised slowly down a busy road before a police officer brought it to a halt by ramming the tractor with his car.
Police dogs and a stun gun were used to apprehend the suspect.

ZIMBABWE: President Emmerson Mnangagwa called for unity on Saturday as he appealed to Zimbabwe’s minority white voters to back him with the forthcoming election going close to the wire.

“There is no distinction, if it is there, it is dead.”
Mr Mnangagwa is polling just 3 per cent of his challenger Nelson Chamisa ahead of the July 30 vote.
