Clashes Over Ghana Slum Demolition

Police have used tear gas on residents demonstrating against the demolition of their slum in Ghana's capital Accra.
Thousands of people were protesting in the slum popularly known as Sodom and Gomorrah.
Authorities say the slum blocks water from flowing into the ocean and caused floods at the beginning of June.
The BBC's Sammy Darko at the scene of the protest says police fired tear gas to disperse the protesters but they seem to be overpowered by protesters who threw stones and damaged police vehicles.
He also heard gun shots but could not confirm if the police were using live ammunition.
