Kenya: Investigate Police Crackdown Against Protesters

The brutal crackdown by Kenyan police against protesters must be urgently and impartially investigated, said Amnesty International.

Police descended on a crowd of largely peaceful protesters hitting many of them with batons, lobbing tear gas at them and spraying them with water cannons. In one video widely shared on social media, three policemen were seen kicking and beating a protester after he had collapsed by the roadside. Some media reports say the individual later died of his injuries.
