KISUMU, Kenya – Kenyan police fired tear-gas on Wednesday at a group of 100 chanting supporters of opposition leader Raila Odinga, shortly after their political leader claimed “massive” fraud in this week’s elections, a Reuters witness said.

The unarmed men, who had been chanting “No Raila, no peace,” scattered.

Electoral officials are still counting the votes cast on Tuesday despite the opposition leader Odinga rejected to accept the result released so far.
