Human rights groups are accusing police in Kenya of using excessive force against protesters following last week’s presidential election rerun.

At least six people were killed and dozens were injured in the violence.

More than 30 people have died in protests since August, when the Supreme Court overturned President Uhuru Kenyatta's win and ordered the rerun.

Al Jazeera's Catherine Soi reports from Migori in western Kenya.
