Zimbabwe's human rights record has been in the spotlight at the UN.

In a scheduled review of the country this week, the government responded to concerns about serious restrictions on freedom of expression and the excessive use of force by security services.

Harare was also pushed for news of journalist Itai Dzamara, who went missing 18 months ago.

Daniel Johnson has more from Geneva.
