Uganda Ingrid Turinawe 'sexual abuse' protesters strip
Six protesters were arrested and later detained
A group of women have stripped to their bras in protest at the alleged sexual assault by Ugandan police of a high-profile female opposition politician.
Footage shows an officer squeezing the breast of Ingrid Turinawe of the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) during her arrest ahead of a rally last week.
Deputy police chief Andrew Kaweesa has apologised, saying the incident will be investigated.
Uganda's opposition says police regularly harass them during protests.
Since President Yoweri Museveni's controversial 2011 re-election, there has been a wave of opposition demonstrations - many of which have ended in violence and arrests.
But correspondents say Ugandans are outraged by the arrest on Friday of Ms Turinawe, who is the head of the Women's League of the FDC led by Kizza Besigye.
Ugandan television footage clearly shows that, as several officers tried to pull her out of her vehicle, another grabbed and squeezed her breast - and she is heard shouting out in pain.
The BBC's Siraj Kalyango in the capital, Kampala, says a group of about 15 women marched through the town to the main police station waving placards, including one that read "How would you feel if we squeezed your balls?"
Six protesters were arrested after they refused to put their tops back on - but they were released two hours later without charge.
"We wanted to ask the police if they are there to do their jobs or there to pinch breasts," event organiser Barbara Allimadi told the AFP news agency.

Police under fire over Ingrid arrest

Uganda's police was last evening asked to apologise as it came under a barrage of criticism from women and human rights defenders scandalised by the latest assault of a female opposition activist by its officers.
Forum for Democratic Change Women's League leader Ingrid Turinawe had her right breast repeatedly grabbed and fondled by what looked a policeman on Friday.
She was assaulted on her way to a protest rally in Nansana, outside Kampala.
Yesterday, the Kampala Metropolitan Police Spokesperson, Mr Ibin Ssenkumbi, insisted that policewomen carried out the arrest.
"But all the same, there have been concerns over the arresting exercise. The police are investigating the mistakes committed during the incident and whoever will be found in error will be disciplined," he said in a telephone interview.
Women and rights activists described the treatment of Ms Turinawe as brutal, cruel and condemned the Force for violence against women.
Ms Betty Amongi, the chairperson of the Uganda Women Parliamentary Association, said the police officers targeted Ms Turinawe to humiliate her.
This is beyond the word of police. Ingekuwa nchi zinazojali huyo polisi aliyefanya upuuzi huo saa hizi angekuwa ameisha shitakiwa kwa sex abuse na wote waliokuwa nae kwenye arrest exercise wangesimamishwa kazi. Imagine mumewe na huyu dada anajisikiaje kwa kitendo hiki?.
Yaani hii ni big Scandal ambayo ingeondoka na Mkuu wa polisi nchi ingekuwa nchi zinazojali demokrasia. Ila kwa Africa this is normal, watu kuvutwa korodani na polisi au kulazimishwa kukalia misumari bila ya kuwa na nguo ni sehemu ya utendaji wa polisi wa afrika. What a shame!
The police officer's conduct was beyond the pale.
Intia uchungu san; polisi wengi wa kiafrika wanafanya kazi kama mbwa wa watawala, badala ya kufanya kazi kama walinzi wa raia.
Uhuni sote tumeshapitia.
Huo sio "uhuni" . Ni ushenzi na unyama.
Kitendo cha askari wa Uganda walicho mfanyia mwana mama huyo ni kitendo cha kinyama kabisa na hakifai kuvumiliwa na binadamu yeyote!
Naungana na akina mama walio hamua kuandamana nusu utupu ili kuonesha kukerwa na kitendo alichofanyiwa mwana mama mwenzao.
May be not shame, would like to touch those boobs too
Mkuu unajua yanayotokea hapa Tanzania? ukitaka kujua wape wanawake uhuru wa kusema yanayowakuta, unaweza kusema afadhari Uganda alikoshikwa matiti mwanamke huyo. Hapa bongo wanabakwa, si wanawake tu hata wanaume na wengine wanauawa. Hapa kweli Polisi pia wanaua, kama unakumbukumbu nzuri unaweza kueleza kilichowakuta kina Lunkombe pale Sinza, mpaka leo hakuna kilichofanyika, serikali iko kimya tu kwa kuwa waliouawa ni maskini. Kimsingi naona afadhari kushikwa matiti kuliko kupigwa risasi au kubakwa.
sio hata kushika....jamaa aliminya kabisa.....
Wamruhusu huyo mama alipize kwa ku-squeeze them his balls:A S angry:
Huu unyanyasaji hauvumiliki kabisa.
Sijajua kwa nini serikali za Kiafrika zinakuwa rude sana dhidi ya wapinzani. Hivi Museveni ataishije maisha ya ustaafu uraiani baada ya kuachia madaraka (iwapo itatokea) kwa jinsi anavyowanyanyasa Besigye na wafuasi wake?
hujawahi kusikia kina maathari walichojoaga nguo zote wakati wa kutetea uhuru park? Wanawake wanahitaji kuwa jasiri ili waweze kufanikiwa sio kusubiri kutumia uchi wao kama rushwa ndo wabebwe kama watanzania wapiga kelele za kila siku. Shame on tanzanian women! Hata vitu vilivyo ovious vinawadhalilisha wanasubiri wanaume ndo wawasaidie na jioni wakawaliwaze kwa k zao.
That is UG kaka, hilo ni trela tu, i have been there, polisi wa kenya na uganda wanaogopwa kuliko ww RR unavoogopa ngoma, ila ipo siku haya yataisha tu, sad indeed!
