Reports are 1 person has died and 7 others wounded when police fired live rounds at the crowd. One shouldn't mess with Kenya police....heh
NAIROBI (Reuters) -
Kenyan security forces shot in the air and fired tear gas at hundreds of people protesting in the capital on Friday against the detention of Jamaican Muslim cleric Sheikh Abdullah al-Faisal.As Howie said earlier regarding no one wanting this arsehole; tsk tsk tsk, Maybe he can move in with Joey's in laws in Morocco too?
The protesters, chanting "Allahu Akbar" (God is greatest) and some holding the flag of Somali rebel group al Shabaab, were blocked by police with dogs as they tried to march through the heart of Nairobi after prayers at the downtown mosque.
Some Kenyans, angry the attempted protest had taken place at all, joined forces with the security forces and began hurling stones at the marchers, squeezing them back towards the mosque.
I'm sure Joey(Joseph Cohen aka Yousef al-Khattab) is watching this situation closely.
