Supporters of Kenyan opposition leader Raila Odinga have clashed with police. Clashes occurred after the country’s Supreme Court upheld re-election of President Uhuru Kenyatta. Several were reported to have been injured in Nairobi’s Mathare district where Odinga has a strong support. Odinga had earlier called for a "National Resistance Movement" after Kenyatta's victory. But Kenyatta said he would not engage in dialogue with the opposition. The current unrest in Kenya is described as the worst in the country in a decade.
