'Police' kill Kenya opposition MP

From BBC - Thursday, 31 January 2008, 10:36 GMT

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.

ODM spokesman Henry Kosgie said Mr Too was killed at a roadblock as he drove from Nairobi to Eldoret in the Rift Valley.
