In Uganda, at least 37 people have been killed as protests continue over the arrest of opposition presidential candidate Bobi Wine. Some 350 people have been arrested in the capital Kampala since Wednesday, when Wine was taken into custody. His campaign says he’s been denied access to a lawyer and medical attention. The rapper-turned-politician is seeking to unseat President Yoweri Museveni, who’s been in power for 36 years.
