KAMPALA, Uganda (AP) — Police in Uganda arrested opposition leader Kizza Besigye at his party’s headquarters Friday after heavily armed police surrounded the building and a helicopter fired tear gas at a crowd. Vote counting continued in the country’s tumultuous elections.
Semujju Nganda, a spokesman for Besigye’s Forum for Democratic Change party, said police took Besigye to an unknown location. Afterward, they fired tear gas and live ammunition into the air as warning shots, as well as detonating stun grenades.
