Kenya protest: Police use tear gas and water cannon

Police in the Kenyan capital Nairobi have used water cannon and fired tear gas to disperse opposition protesters demanding the resignation of the country's electoral body.

There were running battles in the streets between anti-riot police and demonstrators, some of whom threw stones at the security officers.

The opposition and a section of religious leaders accuse the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) of favouring the government of President Uhuru Kenyatta and want the electoral body dissolved.

The BBC's Anne Soy reports from Nairobi.
