Post-Election Violence Claims 270 Lives in Kenya

Violence is growing in Kenya, as crowds of people take to the streets to protest the surprise re-election of President Mwai Kibaki.

Up to 50 people died Tuesday when a mob torched a Kenyan church in the fourth day of ethnic violence that erupted after the disputed presidential election.

BBC East Africa correspondent Adam Mynott talks to Alex Chadwick about the riots.
