Kenya's Anti-Polls Agency Protests Turn Deadly

A 41-year-old man from Siaya got caught up in the confusion as opposition National Super Alliance demonstrated against the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission. He is said to have died of shock after police fired teargas to disperse protesting youths. This comes after the government assured citizens there will be security at the nationwide anti-IEBC protests.
