British Prime Minister Theresa May's spokesman says Robert Mugabe has lost the support of Zimbabwe's people.
James Slack says that "we don't yet know how developments in Zimbabwe are going to play out. What does appear clear is that Mugabe has lost the support of the people and of his party."
Slack told reporters that Britain "would appeal for everyone to refrain from violence and hope to see a peaceful and swift resolution to the situation."
Mugabe ignored a midday deadline by the ruling party to resign and now faces impeachment.
