Kenyans flee to Uganda over poll violence

Several Kenyans have fled into neighbouring Uganda following clashes with police over yesterday's repeat presidential election, NTV Uganda reports.



It says police confronted opposition protesters in the western border town of Busia after they blocked roads and set fire to a market.

The officers used tear gas and live bullets to break up the protests.

NTV Uganda reports that tension is high.

A Kenyan radio station is reporting than a man has been shot dead in another western town - Bungoma - in the ongoing clashes over yesterday's election.

Opposition leader Raila Odinga had asked his supporters to boycott Thursday's repeat repeat election saying that it was a "sham".

His call seems to have been widely observed with the electoral commission reporting that fewer than 34% of registered voters took part in the election compared to almost 80% in the original poll in August.
