A Reuters photographer saw what appeared to be one dead body after clashes between Nigerian police and a group of Shi'ite Muslim protesters in the capital Abuja on Monday.

Nigerian police tweeted that they were taking measures to bring the protest under control. The Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN) group has demonstrated regularly to demand the release of its leader, who has been in detention since 2015.
