Third Place - 2017 Chris Hondros Memorial International News
A man, belonging to the Luo tribe, lays motionless on the ground after being beaten by the mob in a Kikuyu tribe area on August 13, 2017 during violent clashes between Luo supporters of defeated opposition leader Raila Odinga and members of President Uhuru Kenyatta's Kikuyu ethnic group in the Mathare slum, a neighborhood of the capital Nairobi. The confrontation broke out after Odinga supporters torched businesses belonging to Kikuyu, who then grouped together armed with sticks, bows and arrows. Clashes followed in which a man was severely beaten, leaving him motionless on the ground. Kenyan elections were marred by violent protests, killings, and beatings in key opposition strongholds along the country. Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International found that just during the August poll, police killed at least 33 people, possibly as many as 50, and injured hundreds more in some parts of Nairobi alone.
