In Kenya, opposition leader Raila Odinga called off a protest campaign Tuesday after three people were shot and killed by police as they demonstrated against Kenya’s election commission. With the latest deaths, human rights groups say at least 67 of Odinga’s supporters have been killed in protests over a failed election on August 8. Incumbent President Uhuru Kenyatta won that election with 54 percent of the vote, but Kenya’s Supreme Court nullified the result, citing irregularities in the country’s electronic voting system. Odinga said last week he would not participate in a revote scheduled for October 26 without electoral reforms.
