Kenya opposition firebrand arrested in dawn raid

Kenyan police on Friday arrested an outspoken member of the opposition, Miguna Miguna, in a dawn raid on his Nairobi home, police and his party said. Armed officers used explosives to break down the door before arresting Miguna, a witness said. "There were several blasts heard at his home before he was finally taken out," said a neighbour who did not want to be named. Miguna is a provocative firebrand who attended the Tuesday mock swearing-in of opposition leader Raila Odinga as the "people's president", in defiance of last year's election that saw Uhuru Kenyatta win a second term.
