CNN’s Verjee Hit With Tear-Gas Canister in Kenya

verjee_1-17.jpgCNN Correspondent Zain Verjee was hit in the back by a tear-gas canister while covering the protests in Kenya yesterday. Verjee was fired on by Kenyan police, in what she called an “unprovoked” attack and example of the police brutality in the country.

Broacasting & Cable reports that Verjee was slightly bruised by the canister, but she quickly moved across the street to escape any further injury. Verjee was covering the rally of thousands of opposition protesters. Verjee grew up in Kenya.

CNN.com has the video of the incident.
