Two people were killed in protests that erupted in western Kenya Saturday after a court upheld Uhuru Kenyatta's victory in the March 4 presidential election, a senior police official said Sunday.

The pair died of their wounds after violence erupted in the city of Kisumu between riot police and angry supporters of Kenyatta's defeated rival Raila Odinga, regional police chief Joseph Ole Tito said. Seven other people were wounded.
