Kenya ‘arrests’ over protest


Kenya’s police say at least 15 people were arrested during the protest organised by the Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (Cord) in Nairobi, AFP news agency reports.

The 15 would be charged in court on Tuesday, police said, without specifying the charges, AFP adds.

Police fired tear gas and beat up protesters demanding that the electoral commission be dissolved and a new one one be set up ahead of general elections next year.
