9-year-old shot dead during Kenya protests
A Nairobi man says his 9-year-old daughter has been killed by a stray bullet as protesters clash with police after the country's disputed presidential election.

 

Wycliff Mokaya tells The Associated Press that his daughter was on their third-floor balcony when she was shot Saturday morning. The family lives in Mathare, an area of Nairobi with many opposition supporters.

 

"I was watching her play with her friends when she suddenly fell down," the father says. "She was my only hope."

 

Police earlier Saturday said they shot dead two people in the city of Kisumu during opposition protests.
