HARARE (Reuters) - Zimbabwe's parliament suspended television and radio broadcasting of a speech by President Robert Mugabe on Tuesday after opposition parties threatened to disrupt the event.

Opposition groups booed and heckled Mugabe about the deteriorating economy in August during his state of the nation address in parliament.
