Zimbabwe has offered to return land to foreign nationals whose farms were seized under a controversial government programme two decades ago.
Thousands of white farmers were forced from their land, often violently, between 2000 and 2001.
The seizures were meant to redress colonial-era land grabs but contributed to the country’s economic decline and ruined relations with the West.
A separate compensation scheme has been launched for local white farmers.
They have not been offered land, but the government last month promised them $3.5bn (£2.6bn) for seized infrastructure.
