Kenya opposition vows 'will not relent' as 11 die in poll protests

Kenya opposition vows 'will not relent' as 11 die in poll protestsKenya’s defeated opposition coalition vowed Saturday they would not halt their bid to overturn a “sham” election result, which sparked violent protests that have left 11 people dead. Protests flared in opposition bastions as soon as President Uhuru Kenyatta was declared the victor on Friday night after an election his rival Raila Odinga claimed was massively rigged. Kenya is no stranger to post-election violence, and scars still run deep from a disputed 2007 vote which led to two months of ethno-political clashes, leaving 1,100 dead and 600,000 displaced.
