Angolan police clamp down on anti-government protests

Angolan police briefly detained dozens of protestors in the capital Luanda after they tried to march in support of a group of activists jailed for planning a rebellion, witnesses said late on Saturday.

Police kicked three people gathering for a demonstration on Saturday, leaving one unconscious, reports Reuters.

The jailed activists were arrested in June after organising a reading of a book on non-violent resistance to repressive genes.
