Odinga's party cancels Kenyan march

NAIROBI, Kenya (CNN) -- Kenya's opposition party has called off Thursday's banned public rally and urged its supporters to go home, according to The Associated Press.

Tear gas and water cannon had been fired at opposition supporters gathering for the rally in Nairobi as tension mounted in the Kenyan capital following days of brutal post-election violence.

"We are a peaceful people who do not want violence," William Ruto, a top official with presidential candidate Raila Odinga's party told AP.

"That is why we are peacefully dispersing now."

Opposition leader Odinga called the meeting despite a government ban on such gatherings, having been forced to abandon his first attempt on Monday soon after the onset of the conflict.

Ruto told AP that another rally was planned for Tuesday next week.

Meanwhile, there were earlier sporadic reports of violence, looting and fires in Nairobi's sprawling slums.

"All Kenyans are invited to Uhuru Park," a statement on Odinga's campaign Web site had said ahead of the rally, as party officials expected at least a million people to attend.
