NAIROBI: Post-election violence worsened in Kenya on Saturday as police used tear gas on a convoy of opposition officials and a mortuary official said nine bodies with gunshot wounds were brought to a Nairobi morgue from a slum that is an opposition stronghold.
As rioting continued the day after President Uhuru Kenyatta won a second term in a vote the opposition claims was rigged, an anguished father said his 9-year-old daughter was killed by a stray bullet while playing with friends.
Police shot and killed two people during riots by opposition supporters on the outskirts of Kisumu, a city where opposition leader Raila Odinga has strong support, according to Leonard Katana, a regional police commander. Another five people were injured by gunfire in Kisumu, Katana said.
