HARARE (AFP) - Former US congressman Melvin Reynolds was remanded in custody Wednesday after appearing in a Zimbabwean court on charges of illegal possession of pornography and flouting immigration laws.

The 62-year-old former congressman from Illinois, wearing a crumpled dark suit and white shirt, was flanked by detectives as he arrived at Harare magistrate's court.

He was charged with breaching Zimbabwe's tough pornography laws and staying in the country on an expired visa.

The case was postponed until Thursday for a bail hearing.
