Now its 19 killed in Malawi’s 20/11 riots

Malawi news "Malawi’s ministry of health spokesman, Henry Chimbali, said the recorded death toll has reached 19 in the national wide anti-President Bingu wa Mutharika demonstration which took place on July 20, 2011 (20/11) and spilled to the next day, leaving dozens severely injured.

Chimbali who earlier confirmed there were 18 deaths, said on Saturday that actually the death toll reached 19 when soldiers were firing live ammunition and teargas to disperse crowds calling for an end to Mutharika’s “autocratic” rule."
