Kenya: Chaos on Mombasa Road as Police Disperse Nasa Supporters

One person has been killed in confrontations between Kenyan police and supporters of opposition leader Raila Odinga as tensions over the disputed presidential election continue.

Leaders of the National Super Alliance mobilised dozens of their supporters to the airport Friday morning to welcome their leader who has been on a 10-day visit to the US.

Live footage on Kenyan TV showed some protesters throwing stones at police and two vehicles on fire. Police denied that any live rounds had been used.

The opposition and eyewitnesses, on the other hand, said police had used tear gas, water cannon trucks and live ammunition against the crowds.

"This (police response) is a sign of a crumbling regime", Raila said.

Police warned earlier this week they would not allow a ceremony to welcome Odinga back from speaking engagements overseas.

"The supporters had tried to make their way to the city centre anticipating that address from Odinga".

"These supporters of NASA were unarmed civilians peacefully exercising their right to assembly", Odinga said in a statement.

Odinga boycotted the new vote, claiming election reforms had not been made.

Odinga has vowed to embark on a political campaign to "restore democracy in the country" and called for a "resistance movement" to protest against the outcome of a presidential election rerun last month which saw President Uhuru Kenyatta win a second term with 98 percent of the vote. Opposition legislators had urged supporters come out "more than 1 million strong".
