Britain says it would support tougher sanctions against Zimbabwe's government, which British officials are now describing as "not legitimate."

In interviews with British media today (Monday), Foreign Office Minister Mark Malloch Brown said the United Nations, African Union, and European Union must agree on stronger measures to bring political change to Zimbabwe.

The United States, Britain, and EU currently have travel bans and other targeted sanctions on more than 100 individuals associated with the government of President Robert Mugabe.

Malloch Brown suggested that as a further measure, international regulators could freeze foreign bank accounts held by Mr. Mugabe's generals.

Both Malloch Brown and British Foreign Secretary David Miliband have said Mr. Mugabe's government can not be considered legitimate because of violence against the opposition and violations of Zimbabwe's own electoral laws.

Australian also said today that it is looking to increase sanctions against Zimbabwe. Prime Minister Kevin Rudd called on African nations to do more against what he called the brutal Mugabe regime.
