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.

Sri Lanka is one of the most dangerous places in the world to be a journalist. Tamil journalists are particularly at threat, with at least 41 media workers known to have been killed by the Sri Lankan state or its paramilitaries during and after the armed conflict.

Despite the risks, our team on the ground remain committed to providing detailed and accurate reporting of developments in the Tamil homeland, across the island and around the world, as well as providing expert analysis and insight from the Tamil point of view
