FREETOWN - Police fired guns and teargas on the headquarters of an opposition party and arrested supporters during celebrations for Sierra Leone's Independence Day on Wednesday, the party and police said.

Hundreds of people had gathered outside the headquarters of Sierra Leone People's Party (SLPP) to celebrate the holiday and the party's founding in 1951. The day is celebrated with carnival-like dances in the streets.
