Zimbabwe's President Robert Mugabe has made his first public appearance since the country's army took over on Wednesday.

He attended a graduation ceremony in the capital, Harare.

Mugabe had been under house arrest for days.

The army made its move after a power struggle over his successor.

The military says it is engaging with Mugabe and will advise the public on the outcome of talks as soon as possible.
