By MacDonald Dzirutwe HARARE (Reuters) - Zimbabwe opposition leaders are going to court to demand authorities allow and provide security for a planned march on Friday calling for electoral reform after police chiefs suggested they presented a petition instead. Leaders from 18 political parties, including Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) leader Morgan Tsvangirai and former vice president Joice Mujuru will lead Friday's demonstration, which they expect to draw thousands of supporters. Police commander for the Harare Central District, Chief Superintendent Newbert Saunyama, told protest organisers in a letter on Thursday that they could present a petition at the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission without marching, adding that the expected number of participants, 150,000, was too big.

Mylan NV, which holds a near-monopoly on the manufacture of the epinephrine injectors, said it would expand existing programs to defray out-of-pocket costs but did not say it would lower prices. After a series of price hikes, a pack of two of the devices sells for more than $600, compared to less than $100 in 2007, when Mylan bought the rights to the technology.
