Kenya election: Observers back Kenyatta victory

Mr Matiang'i said most areas were calm but there had been some violence which he blamed on criminals.

Those killed included a young girl who died as police shot at protesters in the Mathare area of the capital Nairobi, Reuters reported.

A man was killed in Kisumu county, an opposition stronghold and the centre of post-election ethnic violence in 2007, when 1,200 people died and 600,000 were displaced.

Mr Kenyatta has urged peace. "We have seen the results of political violence. And I am certain that there is no single Kenyan who would wish for us to go back to this," he said.

Ahead of the results, Mr Odinga had called on his supporters to remain calm, but added that he did not control anyone, and that "people want to see justice".

Rights group Amnesty International has called for the Kenyan authorities to investigate the killings.
