Tanzanian opposition party leader Zitto Kabwe has been charged with sedition – or inciting people to rebel against authority.

It comes after the campaign group Amnesty International complained about the MP being detained without charge for speaking out against recent killings in his constituency.

He alleges that more than 100 people were killed in a confrontation with police in Kigoma, western Tanzania, while police say four were killed.

He was released on bail earlier today and he has to return to court on 26 November.
