Malawi protests: Opposition demands president's resignation

Malawi police used tear gas on Thursday to disperse the supporters of the opposition party protesting against President Mutharika's re-election.

    Malawi's President Peter Mutharika has accused the opposition of trying to overthrow his government.

    However, the supporters of opposition party leader Lazarus Chakwera say he was robbed of victory in last month's election.

    At least 18 people have been arrested since protests began in the capital, Lilongwe, on Tuesday.
