Uganda: Riots break out on Kampala streets


At least one person has died in riots in Uganda's capital over the treatment of opposition leader Kizza Besigye.

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

Mr Besigye sought medical treatment after being tear-gassed in his car and bundled roughly into a truck when he was arrested on Thursday.
