Kenya protesters teargassed outside police station


Police in Kenya have fired tear gas to disperse human rights activists who are calling for the release of dozens of people who were detained during anti-government protests on Friday.

Video footage shows clouds of tear gas at Nairobi’s central police station.

Among today’s protesters was the former Chief Justice, Willy Mutunga.

Opposition leader Raila Odinga called for Friday’s protests to oppose a rise in fuel tax and the high cost of living.

At least one person is reported to have been killed when police responded to the demonstrations in Nairobi, Mombasa and Kisumu.

At least 28 people were arrested.
