South African police clash with protesters

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) South African riot police clashed with protesters in Soweto on Saturday (June 29) shortly before a visit to the sprawling Johannesburg township by U.S. President Barack Obama. Armed police fired stun grenades to disperse the crowd of several hundred protesters, who had gathered outside the Soweto campus of the University of Johannesburg, where Obama was due to address a "town hall meeting" with students. The town hall meeting caused small protests amongst students of the university who objected to Obama's visit at the time when they say the intake of South African universities is not representative of the country's racial mix.
