Nigerian Shia Muslims tear-gassed

Police in the Nigerian capital, Abuja have fired tear gas to disperse Shia protesters for the second day running.

They are demanding the release of pro-Iranian Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN) Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky, who was arrested in 2015 during a military crackdown in which more than 300 of his supporters were killed.

At least one demonstrator was killed and several others injured on Monday.

Police said in a statement they had arrested 115 protesters.
