HARARE, Zimbabwe — A newspaper loyal to Zimbabwe's ruling party on Sunday accused the US of trying to stop international sales of Zimbabwean diamonds.

The Sunday Mail quoted an e-mail from a US State Department official urging the international diamond control body to ban Zimbabwean diamonds. The paper called it "a well-orchestrated Western-led campaign" against the regime of President Robert Mugabe.
