Kenya: Stray bullet kills girl as police shoot at protesters

A young girl has died after a stray bullet from police shooting at the re-election of Kenyan president Uhuru Kenyatta, a witness said on Saturday.

“The girl was hit by a stray bullet while she was on a balcony as police were firing sporadic shots,” the witness, who only gave his first name, Eric, told Reuters.

It was revealed that  another man was killed in Kisumu county, centre of serious post-election ethnic violence in 2007 in which 1,200 people were killed and 600,000 displaced.

Kisumu’s main hospital was treating four people brought in overnight with gun-shot wounds and six who had been beaten by police, hospital records showed.
