Five die as police battle Nasa supporters welcoming Raila

RailaReturns Kenyan Police Kill Two Supporters Cheering Opposition Leader

The windscreen was allegedly damaged along Jogoo road as opposition supporters engaged in running battles with police, who attempted to block Raila's convoy and his supporters from entering Nairobi Central Business District.

He added that no live bullets were used during the confrontation between Nasa supporters and the police.

Odinga won an unprecedented court victory overturning the result of the August 8 presidential poll, leading to a rerun last month that he then boycotted claiming it would not be free and fair.

The dispute over this year's presidential vote has left the country deeply divided and protests between opposition supporters and police have become commonplace.

Police fired into the air to disperse hundreds of people gathered outside Jomo Kenyatta International Airport who were waiting for Odinga to return from an overseas trip.

Heavy security was deployed along the busy Mombasa road where the opposition leader is expected to make his way to the city centre.

In a statement, police spokesman George Kinoti said the five were stoned to death in mob justice incidents during the march. The leaders were accompanied by a crowd that chanted anti-Jubilee slogans.

The government has denied claims of attempted assassination of National Super Alliance (NASA) leader Raila Odinga.

Police warned earlier this week they would not allow a ceremony to welcome Odinga back from speaking engagements overseas.

"Today is the day we are launching Kenya as a third republic".
