Four Kenyan human rights activists have been arrested outside the Ugandan embassy in Kenya’s capital, Nairobi.

They had gathered to issue a press statement to condemn police brutality against the opposition in Uganda, where elections are being held on Thursday.

But they were detained before they could do so.

The four who are now being held for questioning include Hussein Khalid, the head of rights group Haki Africa, and journalist Yassah Musa.
