Kenyan police fire tear gas to disperse protest

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 a Jamaican Muslim cleric.

Stone-throwing protesters, some waving the flag of Somali rebel group al Shabaab, were driven back as they tried to march through the heart of the capital after prayers at Nairobi's downtown mosque.

Please Note::::I am currently residing 30 minutes outside central Nairobi in a very secure neighborhood, so nothing to worry about!
