At least 24 killed in post-election violence in Kenya, rights group says

At least 24 killed in post-election violence in Kenya, rights group says
CNN:

At least 24 people, including a 9-year-old girl, have been killed in Kenya in the violence that erupted after the re-election of President Uhuru Kenyatta, according to the Kenya National Commission on Human Rights.

"Specifically, these cases indicate that the casualties were felled by bullets and the same has been corroborated by family and community members who have indicated that they were killed during the protests which broke out in various parts of the country," the independent rights group said in a statement. Of those death, 17 were killed in the capital Nairobi, the group said.
Kenyatta, the 55-year-old son of the country's founding President, won a second five-year term Friday, defeating veteran opposition leader and longtime rival Raila Odinga in a tense contest.
Kenyatta, who promised to create 1.3 million jobs, got 54% of the vote while Odinga, who vowed to fight corruption, received 45%.
Protests and violence broke out almost immediately.
Most of the demonstrators were supporters of 72-year-old former political prisoner Odinga, who has rejected the results of the presidential election, calling the vote rigged. National election officials have decried the accusations, saying the vote was free and credible.
Protests erupted in and around Kisumu, a stronghold of defeated opposition leader Odinga. One person was killed overnight in Kisumu, police said.
Violence also broke out in Nairobi's slum of Mathare, where tear gas and gunshots rang out all night, witnesses said.
The 9-year-old, Stabhay Nyarangi Mokaya, was killed by a stray bullet during protests in Mathare early Saturday, her father confirmed to CNN.
