Rigging claims and arrest mar voting in Uganda

Uganda’s opposition leader has been released after being arrested by police in Kampala as the country wraps up voting for the presidential election, which the opposition alleges has been rigged in favour of the incumbent Yoweri Museveni.

Al Jazeera’s Malcolm Webb, reporting from the capital on Thursday, said police briefly detained Kizza Besigya, a presidential candidate, as he and his supporters tried to show reporters what he called a vote-rigging operation.
