Foreign Reporters Taken Away in Zimbabwe?

This is a breaking story from the AP and hopefully it’s not true:

Security agents and paramilitary police in riot gear are surrounding a Harare hotel housing foreign journalists.
A man answering the phone at the hotel says they are taking away some reporters.
The man refused to give his name but said about 30 police entered the hotel Thursday and were preparing to take away four or five journalists.
Foreign journalists have been in Zimbabwe to cover elections in which President Robert Mugabe’s party lost control of parliament. He is apparently facing a runoff for the presidency.
