Zimbabwe's national airline lays off 200 workers

Zimbabwe's state-owned airline has laid off 200 workers, roughly half of its staff, with immediate effect.
     
The job losses are part of a turnaround strategy to bring struggling Air Zimbabwe back to profitability from a US$300 million debt. 
     
Last month the EU banned it from using its airspace, citing safety concerns. 
     
There have been major changes at the national airline since President Robert Mugabe's son-in-law took over as chief operating officer last year.
