A CNN correspondent was injured yesterday when a police officer in Kenya shot a tear gas canister in her back.

Zain Verjee, slightly bruised, was covering protesters in Nairobi, Kenya. she said she was fired by police in what she called an “unprovoked” attack and an example of the police brutality that characterized the government reaction to the protests and continued violence spawned by a disputed election.

CNN showed the video last night.
