Kenya has closed schools in the country’s two main cities as a three-day opposition protest started with demonstrators confronting police.

Tear gas has been fired in the capital, Nairobi, and the coastal city of Mombasa at those protesting over the high cost of living.

More than 50 children were admitted to hospital after tear gas was fired into their classroom in Nairobi.

Many businesses have remained shut over fears of looting, with people scared of getting caught in violent clashes.

The opposition called for a series of protests after tax hikes were introduced last month by the government of the President, William Ruto.

The police chief has said the protests are a threat to national security and has deployed riot officers across the country.
