Limuru, KENYA

A young girl takes refuge with 6,000 other displaced people in the Tigoni police compound. Here the displaced hope to find protection from members of the Kikuyu community who have been chasing down and killing people of other tribes in retaliation to events in the West of the country where Kikuyus are being targeted. The child stands next to a poster of the Manchester United football team. Ethnic violence sparked last December following protests against disputed election results, after suspected vote rigging by Kikuyu President Mwai Kibaki.
