Raila Odinga's auto hit with by a tear gas cannister

Scores of people were wounded and at least five people killed on Friday in confrontations between Kenyan police and supporters of opposition leader Raila Odinga as he returned from an overseas trip.

Odinga, leader of the National Super Alliance (NASA), said in a statement that authorities had also used "armed militia and live bullets" to disperse supporters, which led to the "killing [of] several and maiming [of] many".

Live footage on Kenyan TV showed some protesters throwing stones at police and two vehicles on fire as police and demonstrators fought on one of the main roads leading to the business district of Nairobi.

"The indiscriminate use of live ammunition is totally unacceptable".

In the melee on Jogoo road, police fired a tear gas cannister at Raila's vehicle smashing the windscreen. The leaders were accompanied by a crowd that was chanting anti-Jubilee slogans.
