Uganda miniskirt ban: Police stop protest march
New laws make it illegal to wear clothes that reveal thighs, breasts and buttocks
Police in Uganda have prevented women from marching through the streets of the capital, Kampala, in protest at new laws banning the wearing of miniskirts.
Instead about 200 women, some dressed in short skirts, gathered outside the national theatre to voice their anger.
There have been several incidents over the past week of women in short skirts being publicly harassed and assaulted.
This follows the signing by the president of the anti-pornography bill, which bans “indecent” dressing.
