Nairobi police Japheth Koome described the overnight killings on Sunday as murders. Opposition leader Raila Odinga said those killed were from the Luo community who support his opposition party. Odinga said all those killed were shot dead. He said the current area legislator was shot in the leg by police during the demonstrations. He called for international intervention.
