Uganda riots over arrest of opposition leader Besigye

At least two people have died and 90 have been injured in riots in the Ugandan capital, Kampala, over the treatment of opposition leader Kizza Besigye.

Security forces fired live ammunition, rubber bullets and tear gas to disperse protesters burning tyres.

The unrest flared after footage was shown on national television of the opposition leader being treated roughly when he was arrested on Thursday.
