NAIROBI (Reuters) - Kenyan police used teargas to disperse demonstrators shouting "President, Stop the killings!" outside President Uhuru Kenyatta's offices on Tuesday, in a protest over 28 people killed in a weekend attack claimed by Islamist militants.

The crowd also laid crosses and four coffins outside the building during the protest dubbed #OccupyHarambeeAve, a reference to the president's address. Backers also lit up Twitter with demands the government act to prevent attacks - the most deadly of which, on a shopping mall, killed 67 in 2013.
