Tanks in the streets and long lines to withdraw money - here's what Zimbabwe looks like under military control
Hyperinflation, famine, and crackdowns by the government on dissent have been regular parts of Zimbabwean life since Robert Mugabe took control of the country in 1980.
With the sudden firing of Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa for disloyalty - and his supposedly planning to oust Mugabe with witchcraft - last week, Mugabe seemed to be getting ready to hand over control of the country to his wife, Grace Mugabe.
The Zimbabwean Army, however, seems to have made it clear that they did not support the firing, and over the last two days they have moved swiftly and taken over the country, saying that Mugabe and his wife "are safe and sound."
Here are some images of what life currently looks like under military rule:
