A nine-year-old girl shot dead while 'playing' during protests over Kenya election result

A nine-year-old girl has been killed while playing with her friends during protests over the election result in Kenya.
She's among up to twelve people reportedly shot dead during demonstrations in the western city of Kisumu and slums around Nairobi.

Wycliff Mokaya said his daughter was killed by a stray bullet while on their third-floor balcony in the capital's Mathare slum.

"I was watching her play with her friends when she suddenly fell down," Mr Mokaya said. "She was my only hope."

His daughter is one of a growing number of people killed during protests following the re-election of President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Kenya's opposition has accused the security forces of killing more than 100 people including children but has not produced any proof of their claims.
