NAIROBI, December 31, SPA — Kenyan police battled protesters in blazing slums on Monday after disputed elections returned President Mwai Kibaki to power and triggered turmoil in which more than 70 people have been killed, Reuters reported.
Fatal riots convulsed the nation, from opposition strongholds in the west near the Uganda border to Nairobi’s shanty-towns and the port of Mombasa on the Indian Ocean Coast.
In the western town of Kisumu, a hotbed of opposition support, 21 bodies lay in and around a hospital mortuary, brought in overnight and in the morning, witnesses said. Most had gunshot wounds.
