JOS, Nigeria (AP) -- Police shot and killed at least one demonstrator and wounded another taking part in a political protest Friday in central Nigeria, witnesses said.

"The crowd blocked the road and were throwing stones; then the police fired," local journalist Celestine Attsar said.

Attsar said he saw one man killed by a shot to the head and a wounded man carried into a nearby hospital.

The crowd was protesting the attempted impeachment of state governor Joshua Dariye for corruption.
