Two commuter omnibuses have been burnt after police officers reportedly threw tear gas canisters into the vehicles, reports CiteZW.

Meanwhile, this incident took place in central Bulawayo.

Apparently, sometime last year, seven police officers were arrested after they threw tear gas canisters in a bus full of passengers at Harare Showgrounds.

They were arrested after videos on the incident went viral.

Breathing in tear gas can cause irritation of your nose, throat, and lungs.

People with preexisting respiratory conditions have a higher risk of developing severe symptoms such as respiratory failure after exposure to the gas.
