'POLICE' KILL KENYA OPPOSITION MP !

An opposition MP has been killed in Kenya, as violence continues over last month's disputed election. David Too was shot dead by a traffic policeman in the western town of Eldoret, said a spokesman for his Orange Democratic Movement (ODM). He is the second ODM MP to be killed this week. The shooting of Mugabe Were in Nairobi sparked violent clashes in slums seen as opposition strongholds.

More than 850 people have been killed since the disputed presidential poll. Another 250,000 have fled their homes in what used to be one of East Africa's most stable countries.

ODM spokesman Henry Kosgie said Mr Too was killed at a roadblock as he drove from Nairobi to Eldoret in the Rift Valley. The Rift Valley has seen some of the worst violence since the 27 December election.

On Wednesday, the top US official for Africa, Jendayi Frazer, said there had been "ethnic cleansing" in the region.
