Kenya police fire live rounds to disperse Kisumu protesters

KISUMU, Kenya (Reuters) - Police in one location of the western Kenyan city of Kisumu fired live rounds on Wednesday to disperse stone-throwing supporters of opposition leader Raila Odinga, who claims this week’s elections were rigged, a Reuters witness said.

Separately, a Odinga supporter protesting in the Nairobi slum of Mathare was shot dead by police, witnesses told a Reuters reporter who viewed the body.
