Ugandan police break up 'sham poll' protest
Thursday 10 March 2011
Police in the capital, Kampala, used tear gas and fired shots in the air to disperse a crowd who were protesting against President Yoweri Museveni's election victory last month.
Mr Museveni, in power for 25 years, won 68 per cent of the vote on 18 February, with his closest rival Kizza Besigye on 26 per cent. Mr Besigye said the polls were a sham due to bribery, ballot box stuffing and intimidation. European Union observers and the African Union criticised the poll, but stopped short of condemning the result.
