Kenyan police say they have shoot to kill orders, violence continues after vote rigging charge

Police battled thousands of opposition supporters who charge President Mwai Kibaki stole his way to re-election, and several officers said Monday they had orders to shoot to kill to quell the violence.
Meanwhile, Raila Odinga, the firebrand opposition candidate who had been leading early results and public opinion polls, postponed a planned rally Monday in Nairobi's Uhuru Park _ where protesters seeking multiparty democracy used to gather in the early 1990s. Odinga instead called on 1 million people to gather Thursday.
