October 17, 1995|From Times Wire Reports

Ethnic riots erupted for a second day in a sprawling slum in the Kenyan capital. Two people were killed, witnesses said. Fighting between groups of Luos and Nubians started Sunday when two people were killed in the Kibera slum, where brick houses, cardboard dwellings and thatched huts house an estimated 300,000 people. The violence pits the populous Luo tribe against Nubians, who left their traditional home in Sudan to settle in Kenya.
