Kenya: Coffins set on fire to protest outgoing MPs

Demonstrators celebrate after setting fire to mock coffins on which were written "State Burial, Ballot Revolution" outside the Parliament in Nairobi, Kenya Wednesday, Jan. 16, 2013. Hundreds of demonstrators angered at outgoing Kenyan legislators, whose term ended earlier this week and who earn about $175,000 a year in a country where the average annual income is $1,700, doused 221 mock coffins with gasoline, one for each legislator, to protest against last week's attempt to award themselves a $110,000 bonus, which was vetoed by the president.
