NAIROBI (Reuters) – Kenya’s opposition accused the security forces on Saturday of killing more than 100 people, including children, in a crackdown on post-election unrest.

The party did not offer any proof, and Reuters has only been able to confirm 11 deaths nationwide.

Speaking at a news conference, James Orengo, a top member of the NASA opposition coalition, said police had provoked the violence. His colleague, Johnson Muthama, said NASA would not be cowed or relent under the pressure.
