Several people killed and dozens wounded in protests in Uganda, following the arrest of presidential candidate Bobi Wine. His supporters blocked roads and burned tyres in the capital, Kampala, prompting police to fire tear gas and bullets.
Wine says he has been repeatedly beaten and tortured, while police continue to crack down on his supporters
Wine has been in politics since 2017 when he won a seat in the national assembly.
The presidential hopeful has been arrested many times since.
Analysts say he is gaining popularity among young people who are hoping he will bring change to a country ruled by President Museveni for three and a half decades.
Uganda has never witnessed a peaceful transfer of power since independence in 1962.
